1Help , LORD; for the godly manceaseth ; for the faithfulfail from among the children of men.2
They speakvanity every one with his neighbour: with flatteringlips and with a doubleaheart do they speak .
The LORD shall cut off all flatteringlips, and the tongue that speakethproudb 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 puffethc at him.
The words of the LORD are purewords: as silvertried in a furnace of earth,purified seven times.7
Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from thisgeneration for ever.8
The wickedwalk on every side, when the vilestmendareexalted .
