Psalms 11

For the choir director: A psalm of David.
 1  I trust in the LORD for protection.
So why do you say to me,
  "Fly like a bird to the mountains for safety!
 2  The wicked are stringing their bows
  and fitting their arrows on the bowstrings.
They shoot from the shadows
  at those whose hearts are right.
 3  The foundations of law and order have collapsed.
  What can the righteous do?"

 4  But the LORD is in his holy Temple;
  the LORD still rules from heaven.
He watches everyone closely,
  examining every person on earth.
 5  The LORD examines both the righteous and the wicked.
  He hates those who love violence.
 6  He will rain down blazing coals and burning sulfur on the wicked,
  punishing them with scorching winds.
 7  For the righteous LORD loves justice.
  The virtuous will see his face.
