Psalm 10 (Psalm 11)

The just man’s confidence in God in the midst of persecutions

Unto the end. A psalm to David.

In the Lord I put my trust: how then do you say to my soul: Get there away from hence to the mountain, like a sparrow.

For, lo, the wicked have bent their bow, they have prepared their arrows in the quiver; to shoot in the dark the upright of heart.

For they have destroyed the things which thou hast made: but what has the just man done?

The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord’s throne is in heaven.

His eyes look on the poor man: his eyelids examine the sons of men.

The Lord trieth the just and the wicked: but he that loveth iniquity, hateth his own soul.

He shall rain snares upon sinners: fire and brimstone and storms of winds shall be the portion of their cup.

For the Lord is just, and hath loved justice: his countenance hath beheld righteousness.
