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 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.
