The Godly are No More1 For the choirmaster. According to Sheminith. A Psalm of David. Help, O LORD, for the godly are no more; the faithful have vanished from among men. 2 They lie to one another; they speak with flattering lips and a double heart. 3 May the LORD cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaks proud things. 4 They say, “With our tongues we will prevail. We own our lips— who can be our master?” 5 “For the cause of the oppressed and the groaning of the needy, I will now arise,” says the LORD. “I will bring safety to him who yearns.” 6 The words of the LORD are flawless, like silver refined in a furnace, like gold purified sevenfold. ▼
▼ Probable reading of the original Hebrew text; MT in a furnace of clay,7 You, O LORD, will keep us; You will forever guard us from this generation. 8 The wicked wander freely, and vileness is exalted among men.
