Psalm 11

For the choir director; by David.

I have taken refuge in the Lord.
    How can you say to me:
        “Flee to your mountain like a bird?
        Wicked people bend their bows.
            They set their arrows against the strings
                to shoot in the dark at people whose motives are decent.
        When the foundations of life are undermined,
            what can a righteous person do?”

The Lord is in his holy temple.
The Lord’s throne is in heaven.
    His eyes see.
        They examine Adam’s descendants.
The Lord tests righteous people,
    but he hates wicked people and the ones who love violence.
        He rains down fire and burning sulfur upon wicked people.
        He makes them drink from a cup filled with scorching wind.
The Lord is righteous.
    He loves a righteous way of life.
        Decent people will see his face.
