Psalms 11



Verse 1
"To the chief Musician, [A Psalm] of David." In the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, a Flee [as] a bird to your mountain?

(a) This is the wicked counsel of his enemies to him and his companions to drive him from the hope of God's promise.

Verse 3
If the b foundations be destroyed, what can the c righteous do?

(b) All hope of help is taken away.

(c) Yet am I innocent and my cause good.

Verse 4
The LORD [is] in his holy temple, the LORD'S throne [is] in heaven: his eyes d behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.

(d) Though all things in earth are out of order, yet God will execute judgment from heaven.

Verse 6
Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, e fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: [this shall be] the f portion of their cup.

(e) As in the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.

(f) Which they will drink even to the dregs, (Ezekiel 23:34).
