Psalm 12

For the music leader. According to the Sheminith. A psalm of David.

1 aHelp, LORD, because the godly are all gone; the faithful have completely disappeared from the human race! 2 Everyone tells lies to everyone else; they talk with slick speech and divided hearts. 3 Let the LORD cut off all slick-talking lips and every tongue that brags and brags, 4 that says, "We're unbeatable with our tongues! Who could get the best of us with lips like ours?" 5 But the LORD says, "Because the poor are oppressed, because of the groans of the needy, I'm now standing up. I will provide the help they are gasping for."b 6 The LORD's promises are pure, like silver that's been refined in an oven, purified seven times over! 7 You, LORD, will keep us,c protecting us from this generation forever. 8 The wicked roam all over the place, while depravity is praised by human beings.
