Psalm 12 GW/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 Help, O LORD. No godly person is left. Faithful people have vanished from among Adam's descendants! 1 Help, LORD, for the godly are no more; the faithful have vanished from among men.
2 All people speak foolishly. They speak with flattering lips. They say one thing but mean another. 2 Everyone lies to his neighbor; their flattering lips speak with deception.
3 May the LORD cut off every flattering lip and every bragging tongue 3 May the LORD cut off all flattering lips and every boastful tongue
4 that has said, "We will overcome with our tongues. With lips such as ours, who can be our master?" 4 that says, "We will triumph with our tongues; we own our lips--who is our master?"
5 "Because oppressed people are robbed and needy people groan, I will now arise," says the LORD. "I will provide safety for those who long for it." 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 The promises of the LORD are pure, like silver refined in a furnace and purified seven times. 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 protect them. You will keep each one safe from those people forever. 7 O LORD, you will keep us safe and protect us from such people forever.
8 Wicked people parade around when immorality increases among Adam's descendants. 8 The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.
