Psalm 12American Standard Version (ASV)

For the Chief Musician; set to the Sheminith. A Psalm of David.

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

They speak falsehood every one with his neighbor: With flattering lip, and with a double heart, do they speak.

Jehovah will cut off all flattering lips, The tongue that speaketh great things;

Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; Our lips are our own: who is lord over us?

Because of the oppression of the poor, because of the sighing of the needy, Now will I arise, saith Jehovah; I will set him in the safety he panteth for.

The words of Jehovah are pure words; As silver tried in a furnace on the earth, Purified seven times.

Thou wilt keep them, O Jehovah, Thou wilt preserve them from this generation for ever.

The wicked walk on every side, When vileness is exalted among the sons of men.
