Psalm 11 – The Lord loves the Righteous and Rains Fire on the Wicked

This is still another very good Psalm that demonstrates that we who take refuge in the Lord will not be put to shame. The Lord sees, the Lord rules. He brings tests upon the righteous, but He hates the wicked and the one who does violence.

Hear that, abusers?

Psalms 11:1-7 To the choirmaster. Of David.

In the LORD I take refuge; how can you say to my soul, “Flee like a bird to your mountain,

(2) for behold, the wicked bend the bow; they have fitted their arrow to the string to shoot in the dark at the upright in heart;

(3) if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”

(4) The LORD is in his holy temple; the LORD’s throne is in heaven; his eyes see, his eyelids test the children of man.

(5) The LORD tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.

(6) Let him rain coals on the wicked; fire and sulfur and a scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup.

(7) For the LORD is righteous; he loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold his face.
