Psalm 11

I trust in you LORD for protection.
So why do people say to me,
“Fly like a bird to the mountains for safety!

The wicked are stringing their bows
and fitting their arrows on the bowstrings.
They shoot from the shadows
at those whose hearts are right.

The foundations of law and order have collapsed.
What can the righteous do?”

But LORD you are in your holy Temple;
LORD you still rule from heaven.
GOD you watch everyone closely,
examining every person on earth.

LORD you examine both the righteous and the wicked.
you hate those who love violence.

God you will rain down blazing coals and burning sulfur on the wicked,
punishing them with scorching winds.

For you righteous LORD love justice.
The virtuous will see your face.
