Psalm 12:1-2 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Song for the New Day

12 For the Pure and Shining One
A song of smiting, sung for the new day by King David[a]
Help, Lord! Save us! For godly ones are swiftly disappearing.
Where are the dependable, principled ones?
They’re a vanishing breed!
Everyone lies, everyone flatters, and everyone deceives.
Nothing but empty talk, smooth talk, and double-talk.
Where are the truthful?


  1. Psalm 12:1 The events surrounding this psalm could be the killing of the priests by Saul in 1 Sam. 22:17-19. Saul ordered the death of “eighty-five men who wore the linen ephod.” The killing rampage continued until an entire community of priests had been slaughtered with their women and children. This great evil marked David from that day forward. The inscription found in the Septuagint is “The Eighth Psalm of David.”
