For the music director; by David.
11:1 In the LORD I have taken shelter.
How can you say to me,
“Flee to a mountain like a bird!
11:2 For look, the wicked prepare their bows,
they put their arrows on the strings,
to shoot in the darkness at the morally upright.
11:3 When the foundations are destroyed,
what can the godly accomplish?”
11:4 The LORD is in his holy temple;
the LORD’s throne is in heaven.
His eyes watch;
his eyes examine all people.
11:5 The LORD approves of the godly,
but he hates the wicked and those who love to do violence.
11:6 May the LORD rain down burning coals and brimstone on the wicked!
A whirlwind is what they deserve!
11:7 Certainly the LORD is just;
he rewards godly deeds;
the upright will experience his favor.
