Tehillah 11

Psalm 11

To the chief singer. Of Dawi.
1  In יהוה I have taken refuge; Why do you say to me, “Flee to your mountain like a bird”? 2  For look! The wicked bend a bow, They set their arrow on the string, To shoot in darkness at the upright in heart. 3  When the foundations are destroyed, What shall the righteous do? 4  יהוה is in His qodesh Hĕyḵal, The throne of יהוה is in the shamayim. His eyes see, His eyelids examine the sons of men. 5  יהוה tries the righteous, But His being shall hate the wicked And the one who loves violence. 6  Upon the wicked He rains snares, Fire and sulphur and a scorching wind Are the portion of their cup. 7  For יהוה is righteous, He has loved righteousness; The upright shall see His face.
