Psalm 11

1 In the Lord I have found my refuge:
    how then can you say to me 'Flee like a bird to the mountains;
2 'Look how the wicked make ready the bow, and notch their arrows upon the string:
    to shoot from the darkness at the true of heart;
3 'If the foundations are destroyed:
    what can the righteous do?'
4 The Lord is in his holy place, the Lord is enthroned in heaven:
    his eyes search out, his glance tries the children of Adam.
5 He tries the righteous and the wicked:
    and those that delight in violence his soul abhors.
6 He will rain down coals of fire and brimstone upon the wicked:
    a scorching wind shall be their cup to drink.
7 For the Lord is righteous and loves righteous acts:
    the upright shall see his face.
