Psalm 11

Faith, confidence & courage

are sustained, when under verbal attack.

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

I run to the Lord for safety.
So how can you say to me,
“Fly away like a bird to your mountain.

2 Look! Evil people are bending their bows.
They are placing their arrows against the strings.
They are planning to shoot from the shadows
at those who have honest hearts.

3 When law and order are being destroyed,
what can godly people do?”

4 The Lord is in his holy temple.
The Lord is on his throne in heaven.
He watches all people.
His eyes study them.

5 The Lord watches over those who do what is right.
But he hates sinful people and those who love to hurt others.

6 He will pour out flaming coals and burning sulphur
on those who do what is wrong.
A hot and dry wind will destroy them.

7 The Lord always does what is right.
So he loves it when people do what is fair.
Those who are honest will enjoy his blessing.
