New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
4 They say, "We will lie to our hearts' content. Our lips are our own -- who can stop us?" 4 that says, "We will triumph with our tongues; we own our lips--who is our master?"
5 The LORD replies, "I have seen violence done to the helpless, and I have heard the groans of the poor. Now I will rise up to rescue them, as they have longed for me to do." 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 LORD's promises are pure, like silver refined in a furnace, purified seven times over. 6 And the words of the LORD are flawless, like silver refined in a furnace of clay, purified seven times.
