Psalm 12

To the chief Musician upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David.

Help, Lord; for the godly man ceaseth;
for the faithful fail from among the children of men.
They speak vanity every one with his neighbour:
with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.
The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips,
and the tongue that speaketh proud things:
who have said, With our tongue will we prevail;
our lips are our own: who is lord over us?
For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy,
now will I arise, saith the Lord;
I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.

The words of the Lord are pure words:
as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
Thou shalt keep them, O Lord,
thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
The wicked walk on every side,
when the vilest men are exalted.
