For the director of music. By the sheminith. A song of David.
12 Save me, Lord, because the good people are all gone. No true believers are left on earth. 2 Everyone lies to his neighbors. They say one thing and mean another.
3 The Lord will stop those lying lips. He will cut off those bragging tongues. 4 They say, “Our tongues will help us win. We can say what we wish. No one is our master.”
5 But the Lord says, “I will now rise up because the poor are being hurt. Because of the moans of the helpless, I will give them the help they want.” 6 The Lord’s words are pure. They are like silver purified by fire, like silver purified seven times over.
7 Lord, keep us safe. Always protect us from such people. 8 The wicked are all around us. Everyone loves what is wrong.
