Chapter 11

The providence and justice of God. (To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.)

1)In that day thou shalt come, O Lord; and I will put my trust in thee. Thou shalt say unto thy people, for mine ear hath heard thy voice; thou shalt say unto every soul, Flee unto my mountain; and the righteous shall flee like a bird that is let go from the snare of the fowler.

2)For the wicked bend their bow; lo, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart, to destroy their foundation.

3)But the foundations of the wicked shall be destroyed, and what can they do?

4)For the Lord, when he shall come into his holy temple, sitting upon God's throne in heaven, his eyes shall pierce the wicked.

5)Behold his eyelids shall try the children of men, and he shall redeem the righteous, and they shall be tried. The Lord loveth the righteous, but the wicked, and him that loveth violence, his soul hateth.

6)Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire, and brimstone, and a horrible tempest, the portion of their cup.

7)For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.
