Sweet Words

Psalm 11 

In the LORD I take refuge.
       How then can you say to me:
       "Flee like a bird to your mountain.

  
For look, the wicked bend their bows;
       they set their arrows against the strings
       to shoot from the shadows
       at the upright in heart.


When the foundations are being destroyed,
       what can the righteous do?"


The LORD is in his holy temple;
       the LORD is on his heavenly throne.
       He observes the sons of men;
       his eyes examine them.


The LORD examines the righteous,
       but the wicked and those who love violence
       his soul hates.


On the wicked he will rain
       fiery coals and burning sulfur;
       a scorching wind will be their lot.


For the LORD is righteous,
       he loves justice;
       upright men will see his face.
