And the words of the Lord are flawless,(A)
    like silver purified(B) in a crucible,(C)
    like gold[a] refined seven times.

You, Lord, will keep the needy safe(D)
    and will protect us forever from the wicked,(E)

  1. Psalm 12:6 Probable reading of the original Hebrew text; Masoretic Text earth

24 For,

“All people are like grass,
    and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall,
25     but the word of the Lord endures forever.”[a](A)

And this is the word that was preached to you.

Therefore, rid yourselves(B) of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander(C) of every kind. Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk,(D) so that by it you may grow up(E) in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.(F)
