Psalm 12

To the chief Musician upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David.

12:1
Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.
12:2
They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.
12:3
The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things:
12:4
Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?
12:5
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.
12:6
The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
12:7
Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
12:8
The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.
