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.

詩篇 11

信靠上帝

大衛的詩,交給樂長。

1我投靠耶和華,
你們怎能對我說:「要像飛鳥一樣逃到山裡。
看啊,惡人彎弓搭箭,
要暗射心地正直的人。
根基若遭毀壞,
義人還能做什麼?」
耶和華在祂的聖殿裡,
坐在天上的寶座上,
放眼巡視,察看世人。
耶和華察驗義人和惡人,
祂憎恨邪惡和殘暴之徒。
祂要把烈焰熊熊的火炭和硫磺降在惡人身上,
用炙熱的風懲罰他們。
因為耶和華是公義的,
祂喜愛公義。
正直的人必見祂的面。
