Psalm 12

21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

12 Help, Lord, for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.

They speak vanity every one with his neighbor; with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.

The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things,

who have said, “With our tongue, we will prevail; our lips are our own; who is lord over us?”

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

The words of the Lord are pure words, as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

Thou shalt keep them, O Lord; Thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

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