Amplified Bible

Psalm 11

The Lord a Refuge and Defense.

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

1In the Lord I take refuge [and put my trust];
How can you say to me, “Flee like a bird to your mountain;

For look, the wicked are bending the bow;
They take aim with their arrow on the string
To shoot [by stealth] in darkness at the upright in heart.

“If the foundations [of a godly society] are destroyed,
What can the righteous do?”


The Lord is in His holy temple; the Lord’s throne is in heaven.
His eyes see, His eyelids test the children of men.

The Lord tests the righteous and the wicked,
And His soul hates the [malevolent] one who loves violence.

Upon the wicked (godless) He will rain coals of fire;
Fire and [a]brimstone and a dreadful scorching wind will be the portion of their cup [of doom].

For the Lord is [absolutely] righteous, He loves righteousness (virtue, morality, justice);
The upright shall see His face.

诗篇 11

信靠上帝

大卫的诗,交给乐长。

1我投靠耶和华,
你们怎能对我说:“要像飞鸟一样逃到山里。
看啊,恶人弯弓搭箭,
要暗射心地正直的人。
根基若遭毁坏,
义人还能做什么?”
耶和华在祂的圣殿里,
坐在天上的宝座上,
放眼巡视,察看世人。
耶和华察验义人和恶人,
祂憎恨邪恶和残暴之徒。
祂要把烈焰熊熊的火炭和硫磺降在恶人身上,
用炙热的风惩罚他们。
因为耶和华是公义的,
祂喜爱公义。
正直的人必见祂的面。
