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.

Zabbuli 11

Ya Mukulu wa Bayimbi. Zabbuli ya Dawudi.

1Mu Mukama mwe neekweka;
    ate muyinza mutya okuŋŋamba nti,
    “Ddukira ku nsozi ng’ebinyonyi?
Kubanga laba ababi baleega emitego gyabwe
    egy’obusaale,
balase abalina omutima
    omulongoofu.
Emisingi nga gizikirizibwa,
    omutuukirivu ayinza kukola ki?”

Mukama ali mu Yeekaalu ye entukuvu;
    Mukama atudde ku ntebe ye ey’obwakabaka eri mu ggulu.
Amaaso ge gatunuulira
    era geetegereza abaana b’abantu.
Mukama akebera abatuukirivu
    naye omutima gwe gukyawa ababi,
    n’abakola eby’obukambwe.
Ababi alibayiwako
    amanda ag’omuliro;
    n’empewo ezibambula gwe guliba omugabo gwabwe.

Kubanga Mukama mutuukirivu
    era ayagala eby’obutuukirivu;
    abo abalongoofu be balimulaba.
