Psalm 12 (Today's New International Version)

View In My Bible

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

1 Help, LORD, for no one is faithful anymore;1 those who are loyal have vanished from the human race. 2 Everyone lies2 to their neighbor; they flatter with their lips but harbor deception in their hearts.3 3 May the LORD silence all flattering lips4 and every boastful tongue--5 4 those who say, "By our tongues we will prevail;6 our own lips will defend us--who is lord over us?" 5 "Because the poor are plundered7 and the needy groan,8 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 purified12 in a crucible,13 like golda refined seven times. 7 You, LORD, will keep the needy safe14 and will protect us forever from the wicked,15 8 who freely strut16 about while depravity is honored by the human race.
