Psalm 11

Psalm 11

For the choir director: A psalm of David.

I trust in the Lord for protection.
So why do you say to me,
    “Fly like a bird to the mountains for safety!
The wicked are stringing their bows
    and fitting their arrows on the bowstrings.
They shoot from the shadows
    at those whose hearts are right.
The foundations of law and order have collapsed.
    What can the righteous do?”

But the Lord is in his holy Temple;
    the Lord still rules from heaven.
He watches everyone closely,
    examining every person on earth.
The Lord examines both the righteous and the wicked.
    He hates those who love violence.
He will rain down blazing coals and burning sulfur on the wicked,
    punishing them with scorching winds.
For the righteous Lord loves justice.
    The virtuous will 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。
