Psalm 11In the Lord I put my trust;
How can you say to my soul,
“Flee as a bird to your mountain”?

For look! The wicked bend their bow,
They make ready their arrow on the string,
That they may shoot secretly at the upright in heart.
If the foundations are destroyed,
What can the righteous do?

The Lord is in His holy temple,
The Lord’s throne is in heaven;
His eyes behold,
His eyelids test the sons of men.
The Lord tests the righteous,
But the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates.
Upon the wicked He will rain coals;
Fire and brimstone and a burning wind
Shall be the portion of their cup.

The man that was moving through the crowd, all of a sudden, came through with a lawnmower. The lady that stepped out of line placed a red, medium-sized purse directly at her feet. The man was trying to cut it down with the lawnmower. She was trying to protect it. That’s all I remember at this time.
