Psalm 12:5-7 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Those who say, “By our tongues we prevail;
    when our lips speak, who can lord it over us?”

III

“Because they rob the weak, and the needy groan,
    I will now arise,” says the Lord;
    “I will grant safety to whoever longs for it.”

IV

The promises of the Lord are sure,
    silver refined in a crucible,[a]
    silver purified seven times.
