11:1 <For the chief music-maker. Of David.> In the Lord put I my faith; how will you say to my soul, Go in flight like a bird to the mountain?

11:2 See, the bows of the evil-doers are bent, they make ready their arrows on the cord, so that they may send them secretly against the upright in heart.

11:3 If the bases are broken down, what is the upright man to do?

11:4 The Lord is in his holy Temple, the Lord's seat is in heaven; his eyes are watching and testing the children of men.

11:5 The Lord puts the upright and the sinner to the test, but he has hate in his soul for the lover of violent acts.

11:6 On the evil-doer he will send down fire and flames, and a burning wind; with these will their cup be full.

11:7 For the Lord is upright; he is a lover of righteousness: the upright will see his face.
