Psalm 11

BBE 1 <For the chief music-maker. Of David.> In the Lord put I my faith; how will you say to my soul, Go in flight like a bird to the mountain? NIV 1 In the LORD I take refuge. How then can you say to me: "Flee like a bird to your mountain. BBE 2 See, the bows of the evil-doers are bent, they make ready their arrows on the cord, so that they may send them secretly against the upright in heart. NIV 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. BBE 3 If the bases are broken down, what is the upright man to do? NIV 3 When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do ?" BBE 4 The Lord is in his holy Temple, the Lord's seat is in heaven; his eyes are watching and testing the children of men. NIV 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. BBE 5 The Lord puts the upright and the sinner to the test, but he has hate in his soul for the lover of violent acts. NIV 5 The LORD examines the righteous, but the wicked and those who love violence his soul hates. BBE 6 On the evil-doer he will send down fire and flames, and a burning wind; with these will their cup be full. NIV 6 On the wicked he will rain fiery coals and burning sulfur; a scorching wind will be their lot. BBE 7 For the Lord is upright; he is a lover of righteousness: the upright will see his face. NIV 7 For the LORD is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face.
