Psalm 12 (New International Version)

View In My Bible

For the director of music. According to "sheminith." A psalm of David.

1 Help, LORD, for the godly are no more;1 the faithful have vanished from among men. 2 Everyone lies2 to his neighbor; their flattering lips speak with deception.3 3 May the LORD cut off all flattering lips4 and every boastful tongue5 4 that says, "We will triumph with our tongues;6 we own our lipsa--who is our master?" 5 "Because of the oppression7 of the weak and the groaning8 of the needy, I will now arise,9" says the LORD. "I will protect them10 from those who malign them." 6 And the words of the LORD are flawless,11 like silver refined12 in a furnace13 of clay, purified seven times. 7 O LORD, you will keep us safe14 and protect us from such people forever.15 8 The wicked freely strut16 about when what is vile is honored among men.
