Psalms 11:1-7

(Of the Director. Of David’s.) 11  In Jehovah I take refuge: how is it you say to my soul “Flit mountainward like a sparrow”? 2  For here have the wicked strung their bow, Set their arrow on the string, in gloom to shoot at right-minded men. 3  When the foundations are torn up what does an honest man do? 4*  Jehovah is in his holy temple; Jehovah has his throne in the sky; His eyes view, his glances test, the sons of men. 5  Jehovah tests honest man and rascal, and his nature hates a lover of outrage. 6  He will rain on rascals burning charcoal and sulfur, and scorching wind is the cup poured out for them. 7  For Jehovah is honest, loves honest doings; upright men shall behold his face.
