Psalms 12

To the chief Musician upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David. Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men. {upon...: or, upon the eighth} {Help: or, Save} They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak. {a double...: Heb. an heart and an heart} The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things: {proud: Heb. great} Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us? {are...: Heb. are with us} For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the LORD; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him. {puffeth...: or, would ensnare him} The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever. {them from: Heb. him, etc: that is, every one of them, etc} The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted. {men: Heb. of the sons of the men}
