Psalm 11:1-7

To the director. Of David. 11 * In Jehovah I have taken refuge.+How dare YOU men say to my soul:“Flee as a bird to YOUR mountain!”+   For, look! the wicked ones themselves bend the bow,+They do make ready their arrow upon the bowstring,To shoot in the gloom at the ones upright in heart.+   When the foundations themselves are torn down,+What must anyone righteous do?   Jehovah is in his holy temple.+Jehovah—in the heavens is his throne.+His own eyes behold, his own beaming eyes* examine+ the sons of men.*   Jehovah himself examines the righteous one as well as the wicked one,+And anyone loving violence His soul certainly hates.+   He will rain down upon the wicked ones traps, fire and sulphur+And a scorching wind, as the portion of their cup.+   For Jehovah is righteous;+ he does love righteous acts.+The upright are the ones that will behold his face.+
