Psalm 11

(from Day 2 Morning Prayer)

In Domino confido

  1. IN THE Lord put I my trust: how say ye then to my soul, that she should flee as a bird unto the hill?
  2. For lo, the ungodly bend their bow, and make ready their arrows within the quiver: that they may privily shoot at them which are true of heart.
  3. For the foundations will be cast down: and what hath the righteous done?
  4. The Lord is in his holy temple: the Lord's seat is in heaven.
  5. His eyes consider the poor: and his eye-lids try the children of men.
  6. The Lord alloweth the righteous: but the ungodly, and him that delighteth in wickedness, doth his soul abhor.
  7. Upon the ungodly he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, storm and tempest: this shall be their portion to drink.
  8. For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness: his countenance will behold the thing that is just.
