King James Version (ENGKJV)
11

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

111In the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?

2For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.11.2 privily: Heb. in darkness

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

4The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD’s throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.

5The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.

6Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.11.6 an horrible…: or, a burning tempest

7For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.

To the chief Musician upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David.

121Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.12.1 upon…: or, upon the eighth12.1 Help: or, Save

2They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.12.2 a double…: Heb. an heart and an heart

3The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things:12.3 proud: Heb. great

4Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?12.4 are…: Heb. are with us

5For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the LORD; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.12.5 puffeth…: or, would ensnare him

6The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

7Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.12.7 them from: Heb. him, etc: that is, every one of them, etc

8The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.12.8 men: Heb. of the sons of the men

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

131How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?13.1 chief…: or, overseer

2How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?

3Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;

4Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.

5But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.

6I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
