Psalm Challenge #11


Psalm 11
To the choirmaster. Of David.
1. In the Lord I take refuge; how can you say to me,
"Flee like a bird to the mountains;




2. for lo, the wicked bend the bow,
they have fitted their arrow to the string,
to shoot in the dark at the upright in heart;
3. if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do"?




4. The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord's throne is in heaven;
his eyes behold, his eyelids test, the children of men.




5. The Lord tests the righteous and the wicked, 
and his soul hates him that loves violence.
6. On the wicked he will rain coals of fire and brimstone;
a scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup.




7. For the Lord is righteous, he loves righteous deeds; 
the upright shall behold his face.




From the Revised Standard version.

Nydelig bilder til disse versene. Likte spesielt godt de 2 siste. Det siste er bare helt magisk med strålene skytende ut av skyen.
Ha en god dag!

Your photos are so beautifully set to the Psalm ... how wonderful.

I almost jumped out of my chair when I got to that last picture. Do you see the heart? Outlined and highlighted by molten gold??? It's GORGEOUS! I would like to feature this picture on Guest Heart Thursday this week. May I?

P.S. I stopped by to let you know you got an award over at Random Hearts - come on over and pick it up!

I agree with Clytie, that last photo is magnificent, the type of view that touches ones heart and we are never the same.
