Psalms Chapter 11 - New American Standard Bible

1. IN the LORD I take refuge; How can you say to my soul, «Flee as a bird to your mountain;

2. For, behold, the wicked bend the bow, They [1] make ready their arrow upon the string To shoot in darkness at the upright in heart.

3. If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do?»

4. The LORD is in His holy temple; the [2] LORD'S throne is in heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.

5. The LORD tests the righteous and the wicked, And the one who loves violence His soul hates.

6. Upon the wicked He will rain [3] snares; Fire and brimstone and burning wind will be the portion of their cup.

7. For the LORD is righteous, He loves [4] righteousness; The upright will behold His face.
