Psalm 11:3-5 The Passion Translation (TPT)

What can the righteous accomplish
when truth’s pillars are destroyed and law and order collapse?
Yet the Eternal One is never shaken[a]
he is still found in his temple of holiness,
reigning as Lord and King over all.
He is closely watching everything that happens.
And with a glance, his eyes examine every heart.[b]
For his heavenly rule will prevail over all.
He will test both the righteous and the wicked,
exposing each heart.
God’s very soul detests those who love to resort to violence.

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 11:4 This is an implied contrast made explicit from the text. This psalm shows the contrast between what can be shaken and what is unshakable.
  2. Psalm 11:4 The actual Hebrew is “his eyelids.” Some see the “eyelid” as the lid of the ark of covenant, which was the mercy seat.

Psalm 11:3-5 New International Version (NIV)

When the foundations are being destroyed,
    what can the righteous do?”

The Lord is in his holy temple;
    the Lord is on his heavenly throne.
He observes everyone on earth;
    his eyes examine them.
The Lord examines the righteous,
    but the wicked, those who love violence,
    he hates with a passion.
