Psalm 11 Jan. 5 For the Chief Musician. By David. 1In Yahweh I take refuge. How can you say to my soul, Flee as a bird to Your mountain! 2For, behold, the wicked bend their bows and set their arrows on the strings, that they may shoot in darkness at the upright in heart. 3If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do? 4Yahweh is in His holy temple. Yahweh is on His throne in heaven. His eyes observe,  His eyes examine the children of men. 5Yahweh examines the righteous, but the wicked and him who loves violence His soul hates. 6On the wicked He will rain blazing coals; fire, sulphur, and scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup. 7For Yahweh is righteous, He loves righteousness. The upright shall see His face.     


11:4 We are invited to see God enthroned in a Heavenly court which is sitting 24/7, judging multiple cases at once as they occur worldwide. 
11:7 Shall see His face- This in a literal sense was the ultimate hope of David (17:5), Job (Job 19:27) and all the faithful (Rev. 22:4); for God exists in a personal, corporeal form, in whose image we are made.
