Psalm 11 New Life Version (NLV)

The Lord—a Safe Place

11 In the Lord I am safe. How can you say to me, “Fly away as a bird to your mountain? For look, the sinful raise their bow. They make their arrow ready on the string to shoot in the dark against the pure in heart. If the base of the building is destroyed, what can those who are right with God do?”

The Lord is in His holy house. The Lord’s throne is in heaven. His eyes see as He tests the sons of men. The Lord tests and proves those who are right and good and those who are sinful. And His soul hates the one who loves to hurt others. He will send down fire upon the sinful. Fire and sulphur and burning wind will be the cup they will drink. For the Lord is right and good. He loves what is right and good. And those who are right with Him will see His face.

Psalm 11 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 11

For the director of music. Of David.

In the Lord I take refuge.
    How then can you say to me:
    “Flee like a bird to your mountain.
For look, the wicked bend their bows;
    they set their arrows against the strings
to shoot from the shadows
    at the upright in heart.
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.
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.
