11 The Lord is my fortress! Don’t say to me, “Escape like a bird to the mountains!” 2 You tell me, “Watch out! Those evil people have put their arrows on their bows, and they are standing in the shadows, aiming at good people. 3 What can an honest person do when everything crumbles?”
4 The Lord is sitting in his sacred temple on his throne in heaven. He knows everything we do because he sees us all. 5 The Lord tests honest people, but despises those who are cruel and love violence. 6 He will send fiery coals[a] and flaming sulfur down on the wicked, and they will drink nothing but a scorching wind.
7 The Lord always does right and wants justice done. Everyone who does right will see his face.
