Psalm 11

1 I trust in the Lord for protection. So why do you say to me, "Fly like a bird to your mountain.
2 Like hunters, the wicked string their bows; they set their arrows on the bowstrings. They shoot from dark places at those who are honest.
3 When all that is good falls apart, what can good people do?"
4 The Lord is in his holy temple; the Lord sits on his throne in heaven. He sees what people do; he keeps his eye on them.
5 The Lord tests those who do right, but he hates the wicked and those who love to hurt others.
6 He will send hot coals and burning sulfur on the wicked. A whirlwind is what they will get.
7 The Lord does what is right, and he loves justice, so honest people will see his face. For the director of music. Upon the sheminith. A psalm of David.
