Psalms (NIV) 12:1-8

[For the director of music. According to sheminith . A psalm of David.]

1 Help, LORD , for the godly are no more; the faithful have vanished from among men. images (4)
2 Everyone lies to his neighbor; their flattering lips speak with deception.
3 May the LORD cut off all flattering lips and every boastful tongue
4 that says, “We will triumph with our tongues; we own our lips -who is our master?”
5 “Because of the oppression of the weak and the groaning of the needy, I will now arise,” says the LORD . “I will protect them from those who malign them.”
6 And the words of the LORD are flawless, like silver refined in a furnace of clay, purified seven times.
7 O LORD , you will keep us safe and protect us from such people forever.
8 The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.
