Psalm 12

YLT 1 To the Overseer, on the octave. -- A Psalm of David. Save, Jehovah, for the saintly hath failed, For the stedfast have ceased From the sons of men: NIV 1 Help, LORD, for the godly are no more; the faithful have vanished from among men. YLT 2 Vanity they speak each with his neighbour, Lip of flattery! With heart and heart they speak. NIV 2 Everyone lies to his neighbor; their flattering lips speak with deception. YLT 3 Jehovah doth cut off all lips of flattery, A tongue speaking great things, NIV 3 May the LORD cut off all flattering lips and every boastful tongue YLT 4 Who said, `By our tongue we do mightily: Our lips [are] our own; who [is] lord over us?' NIV 4 that says, "We will triumph with our tongues; we own our lips--who is our master?" YLT 5 Because of the spoiling of the poor, Because of the groaning of the needy, Now do I arise, saith Jehovah, I set in safety [him who] doth breathe for it. NIV 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." YLT 6 Sayings of Jehovah [are] pure sayings; Silver tried in a furnace of earth refined sevenfold. NIV 6 And the words of the LORD are flawless, like silver refined in a furnace of clay, purified seven times. YLT 7 Thou, O Jehovah, dost preserve them, Thou keepest us from this generation to the age. NIV 7 O LORD, you will keep us safe and protect us from such people forever. YLT 8 Around the wicked walk continually, According as vileness is exalted by sons of men! NIV 8 The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.
