When truth’s pillars are destroyed

Lord, don’t you hear
What my well-meaning friends keep saying to me:

“Run away while you can!
Fly away like a bird to hide in the mountains for safety,
For your enemies have prepared a trap for you!
They plan to destroy you with their slander and deceitful lies.
Can’t you see them hiding
In their place of darkness and shadows?
They’re set against you and all those who live upright lives.”

But don’t they know, Lord, that I have made you
My only Hiding Place?
Don’t they know that I always trust in you?

What can the righteous accomplish
When truth’s pillars are destroyed and law and order collapse?

Yet the Eternal One is never shaken –
He is still found in his temple of holiness
Reigning as Lord and King over all.

He is closely watching everything that happens.
And with a glance, his eyes examine every heart
for his heavenly rule will prevail over all…

(from Psalm 11 The Passion Translation)

His law is love.
