Psalm 12

1  Help me, Lord, for no one godly is left; 
   the faithful have vanished from the whole human race.
2  They all speak falsely with their neighbour; 
   they flatter with their lips, but speak from a double heart.
3  O that the Lord would cut off all flattering lips 
   and the tongue that speaks proud boasts!
4  Those who say, ‘With our tongue will we prevail; 
   our lips we will use; who is lord over us?’
5  ‘Because of the oppression of the needy,
      and the groaning of the poor, 
   I will rise up now,’ says the Lord,
      ‘and set them in the safety that they long for.’
6  The words of the Lord are pure words, 
   like silver refined in the furnace
      and purified seven times in the fire.
7  You, O Lord, will watch over us 
   and guard us from this generation for ever.
8  The wicked strut on every side, 
   when what is vile is exalted by the whole human race.
