11 I trust in the Lord for protection. So why do you say to me, “Fly like a bird to your mountain. 2 Like hunters, the wicked string their bows. They set their arrows on the bowstrings. They shoot from dark places at those who are honest. 3 When all that is good falls apart, what can good people do?”
4 The Lord is in his holy temple. The Lord sits on his throne in heaven. And he sees what people do. He keeps his eye on them. 5 The Lord tests those who do right. But he hates the wicked and those who love to hurt others. 6 He will send hot coals on the wicked. Burning sulfur and a whirlwind is what they will get. 7 The Lord does what is right, and he loves justice. So honest people will see his face.
