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.

Psalm 13

1  How long will you forget me, O Lord; for ever? 
   How long will you hide your face from me?
2  How long shall I have anguish in my soul
      and grief in my heart, day after day? 
   How long shall my enemy triumph over me?
3  Look upon me and answer, O Lord my God; 
   lighten my eyes, lest I sleep in death;
4  Lest my enemy say, ‘I have prevailed against him,’ 
   and my foes rejoice that I have fallen.
5  But I put my trust in your steadfast love; 
   my heart will rejoice in your salvation.
6  I will sing to the Lord, 
   for he has dealt so bountifully with me.

Psalm 14

1  The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ 
   Corrupt are they, and abominable in their wickedness;
      there is no one that does good.
2  The Lord has looked down from heaven
      upon the children of earth, 
   to see if there is anyone who is wise
      and seeks after God.
3  But every one has turned back;
      all alike have become corrupt: 
   there is none that does good; no, not one.
4  Have they no knowledge, those evildoers, 
   who eat up my people as if they ate bread
      and do not call upon the Lord?
5  There shall they be in great fear; 
   for God is in the company of the righteous.
6  Though they would confound the counsel of the poor, 
   yet the Lord shall be their refuge.
7  O that Israel’s salvation would come out of Zion! 
   When the Lord restores the fortunes of his people,
      then will Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.
