Psalm 11 (WEBP)

[1] In Yahweh, I take refuge. How can you say to my soul, “Flee as a bird to your mountain”?
[2] For, behold, the wicked bend their bows. They set their arrows on the strings, that they may shoot in darkness at the upright in heart.
[3] If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?
[4] Yahweh is in his holy temple. Yahweh is on his throne in heaven. His eyes observe. His eyes examine the children of men.
[5] Yahweh examines the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and him who loves violence.
[6] On the wicked he will rain blazing coals; fire, sulfur, and scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup.
[7] For Yahweh is righteous. He loves righteousness. The upright shall see his face.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 11 (YLT)

[1] In Jehovah I trusted, how say ye to my soul, ‘They moved to Thy mountain for the bird?
[2] For lo, the wicked tread a bow, They have prepared their arrow on the string, To shoot in darkness at the upright in heart.
[3] When the foundations are destroyed, The righteous-what hath he done?
[4] ‘Jehovah is in his holy temple: Jehovah-in the heavens is His throne. His eyes see-His eyelids try the sons of men.
[5] Jehovah the righteous doth try. And the wicked and the lover of violence, Hath His soul hated,
[6] He poureth on the wicked snares, fire, and brimstone, And a horrible wind is the portion of their cup.
[7] For righteous is Jehovah, Righteousness He hath loved, The upright doth His countenance see!’
