Psalms 11:1-7 (NLT)

1 For the choir director: A psalm of David. I trust in the LORD for protection. So why do you say to me, “Fly like a bird to the mountains for safety!

2 The wicked are stringing their bows and fitting their arrows on the bowstrings. They shoot from the shadows at those whose hearts are right.

3 The foundations of law and order have collapsed. What can the righteous do?”

4 But the LORD is in his holy Temple; the LORD still rules from heaven. He watches everyone closely, examining every person on earth.

5 The LORD examines both the righteous and the wicked. He hates those who love violence.

6 He will rain down blazing coals and burning sulfur on the wicked, punishing them with scorching winds.

7 For the righteous LORD loves justice. The virtuous will see his face.

I love this translation of verse 7-
Psalm 11:7
[7] GOD’s business is putting things right; he loves getting the lines straight, Setting us straight. Once we’re standing tall, we can look him straight in the eye.
