Psalm 11

1 In the LORD I take refuge.
       How then can you say to me:
       “Flee like a bird to your mountain.

 2 For look, the wicked bend their bows;
       they set their arrows against the strings
       to shoot from the shadows
       at the upright in heart.

 3 When the foundations are being destroyed,
       what can the righteous do?”

 4 The LORD is in his holy temple;
       the LORD is on his heavenly throne.
       He observes the sons of men;
       his eyes examine them.

 5 The LORD examines the righteous,
       but the wicked and those who love violence
       his soul hates.

 6 On the wicked he will rain
       fiery coals and burning sulfur;
       a scorching wind will be their lot.

 7 For the LORD is righteous,
       he loves justice;
       upright men will see his face.
