Psalm 11 GW/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 I have taken refuge in the LORD. How can you say to me: "Flee to your mountain like a bird? 1 In the LORD I take refuge. How then can you say to me: "Flee like a bird to your mountain.
2 Wicked people bend their bows. They set their arrows against the strings to shoot in the dark at people whose motives are decent. 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 [of life] are undermined, what can a righteous person do?" 3 When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do ?"
4 The LORD is in his holy temple. The LORD's throne is in heaven. His eyes see. They examine Adam's descendants. 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 tests righteous people, but he hates wicked people and the ones who love violence. 5 The LORD examines the righteous, but the wicked and those who love violence his soul hates.
6 He rains down fire and burning sulfur upon wicked people. He makes them drink from a cup filled with scorching wind. 6 On the wicked he will rain fiery coals and burning sulfur; a scorching wind will be their lot.
7 The LORD is righteous. He loves a righteous way of life. Decent people will see his face. 7 For the LORD is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face.
