Psalm 11

The Lord Is in His Holy Temple


      1 In the LORD I take refuge; 

      how can you say to my soul, 

      “Flee like a bird to your mountain, 

      2 for behold, the wicked bend the bow; 

      they have fitted their arrow to the string 

      to shoot in the dark 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 LORD’s throne is in heaven; 

      his eyes see, his eyelids test the children of man. 

      5 The LORD tests the righteous, 

      but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence. 

      6 Let him rain coals on the wicked; 

      fire and sulfur and a scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup. 

      7 For the LORD is righteous; 

      he loves righteous deeds; 

      the upright shall behold his face.
