The first book of Psalms, song 11, New English Translation

Psalm 11

   For the music director; by David.
   1 In the LORD I have taken shelter. How can you say to me, "Flee to a mountain like a bird!
   2 For look, the wicked prepare their bows, they put their arrows on the strings, to shoot in the darkness at the morally upright.
   3 When the foundations are destroyed, what can the godly accomplish?"
   4 The LORD is in his holy temple; the LORD's throne is in heaven. His eyes watch; his eyes examine all people.
   5 The LORD approves of the godly, but he hates the wicked and those who love to do violence.
   6 May the LORD rain down burning coals and brimstone on the wicked! A whirlwind is what they deserve!
   7 Certainly the LORD is just; he rewards godly deeds; the upright will experience his favor.
