Psalm 12

12:1 Help, ; for the righteous 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 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 master over us?

12:5 For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith ; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.

12:6 The words of are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

12:7 Thou shalt keep them, O , thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

12:8 The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.
