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.
