11 1 This Psalm containeth two parts. In the first David showeth how hard assaults of temptations he sustained, and in how great anguish of mind he was, when Saul did persecute him. 4 Then next he rejoiceth that God sent him succor in his necessity, declaring his justice as well in governing the good, and the wicked men, as the whole world.
To him that excelleth. A Psalm of David.
1 In the Lord put I my trust; how say ye then to my soul, [a]Flee to your mountain as a bird?
2 For lo, the wicked bend their bow, and make ready their arrows upon the string, that they may secretly shoot at them which are upright in heart.
3 For the [b]foundations are cast down, what hath the [c]righteous done?
4 The Lord is in his holy palace; the Lord’s throne is in the heaven; his eyes [d]will consider; his eyelids will try the children of men.
5 The Lord will try the righteous; but the wicked, and him that loveth iniquity, doth his soul hate.
6 Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, [e]fire, and brimstone, and stormy tempest; this is the [f]portion of their cup.
7 For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness: his countenance doth behold the just.
Psalm 11:1This is the wicked counsel of his enemies to him and his companions to drive him from the hope of God’s promise.
