God, a Helper against the Treacherous.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 12:1 - For the choir director; [fn]upon an eight-stringed lyre. A Psalm of David.
Help, LORD, for the godly man ceases to be,
For the faithful disappear from among the sons of men.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 12:2 - They speak [fn]falsehood to one another;
With flattering [fn]lips and with a double heart they speak.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 12:3 - May the LORD cut off all flattering lips,
The tongue that speaks great things;
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 12:4 - Who have said, “With our tongue we will prevail;
Our lips are [fn]our own; who is lord over us?”
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 12:5 - “Because of the devastation of the afflicted, because of the groaning of the needy,
Now I will arise,” says the LORD; “I will set him in the safety for which he longs.”
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 12:6 - The words of the LORD are pure words;
As silver tried in a furnace on the earth, refined seven times.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 12:7 - You, O LORD, will keep them;
You will preserve him from this generation forever.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 12:8 - The wicked strut about on every side
When [fn]vileness is exalted among the sons of men.
