Psalm 11:1-7 ESV

1 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 stringto 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.
