Psalm 11:5-7 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

The Lord tests honest people,
but despises those
    who are cruel
    and love violence.
He will send fiery coals[a]
and flaming sulfur
    down on the wicked,
and they will drink nothing
    but a scorching wind.

The Lord always does right
    and wants justice done.
    Everyone who does right
    will see his face.

  1. 11.6 fiery coals: Or “trouble, fire.”

Psalm 11:5-7 New International Version (NIV)

The Lord examines the righteous,
    but the wicked, those who love violence,
    he hates with a passion.
On the wicked he will rain
    fiery coals and burning sulfur;
    a scorching wind will be their lot.

For the Lord is righteous,
    he loves justice;
    the upright will see his face.
