Psalm 11

For the director of music. Of David.

1 In the Lord I take refuge.
   How then can you say to me:
   ‘Flee like a bird to your mountain.
2 For look, the wicked bend their bows;
   they set their arrows against the strings
to shoot from the shadows
   at the upright in heart.
3 When the foundations are being destroyed,
   what can the righteous do?’
4 The Lord is in his holy temple;
   the Lord is on his heavenly throne.
He observes everyone on earth;
   his eyes examine them.
5 The Lord examines the righteous,
   but the wicked, those who love violence,
   he hates with a passion.
6 On the wicked he will rain
   fiery coals and burning sulphur;
   a scorching wind will be their lot.
7 For the Lord is righteous,
   he loves justice;
   the upright will see his face.

LORD may your eyes (v4) and not Satan's taunts (v1b) be the thing I focus on today. In you Jesus has taken refuge and so will I. Amen.
