God, a Helper against the Treacherous.

1 Help, LORD, for 1the godly man ceases to be, For the faithful disappear from among the sons of men. 2 They 2speak afalsehood to one another ; With 3flattering blips and with a double heart they speak. 3 May the LORD cut off all flattering lips, The tongue that 4speaks great things ; 4 Who 5have said, "With our tongue we will prevail ; Our lips are cour own; who is lord over us?" 5 "Because of the 6devastation of the afflicted, because of the groaning of the needy, Now 7I will arise," says the LORD ; "I will 8set him in the safety for which he longs." 6 The 9words of the LORD are pure words ; As silver 10tried in a furnace on the earth, refined seven times. 7 You, O LORD, will keep them; You will 11preserve him from this generation forever. 8 The 12wicked strut about on every side When d13vileness is exalted among the sons of men.
