“If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Ps 11:3)
Since the road is wide that leads away from God, those who put their faith in Him must constantly watch the society around them walk away from truth, righteous, justice, and goodness. This is not a new thing – God’s people have always been salmon swimming upstream against the current.
Psalm 11 was written by David during the lawless reign of Saul when wickedness and injustice were more common that truth and fairness. When the moral foundations erode – what can the righteous do? Vexed in his heart like Lot was over Sodom and Gomorrah (see 2 Pet 2:7), David wonders what will come of a world where the wrong rule and oppress the right?
Thankfully, the next verse answers David’s question:
“The LORD is in His holy temple; the LORD’s throne is in heaven; His eyes behold…” (Ps 11:4)
No matter how powerful the siren’s song of evil, the majority does not rule this universe. The LORD is still on His throne.
