Psalm 11

The verse that jumps out at me is "if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?"

The prophet Hosea writes Hosea 8:12 I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing. Hosea 8:11-13

Romans 14:16 Let not then your good be evil spoken of: Romans 14:15-17

If the world calls good evil and evil good, where and how can Christians ever begin to show them what Christ wants?


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 [a] ?"

4 The LORD is in his holy temple;
the LORD is on his heavenly throne.
He observes the sons of men;
his eyes examine them.

5 The LORD examines the righteous,
but the wicked [b] and those who love violence
his soul hates.

6 On the wicked he will rain
fiery coals and burning sulfur;
a scorching wind will be their lot.

7 For the LORD is righteous,
he loves justice;
upright men will see his face.
