Psalm 12Modern English Version (MEV)

Psalm 12

For the Music Director. According to The Sheminith. A Psalm of David.

Help, Lord, for the godly man comes to an end,
    for the faithful disappear from sons of men.
They speak empty words, each with his own neighbor;
    they speak with flattering lips and a double heart.

The Lord will cut off all flattering lips,
    and the tongue that speaks proud things,
who have said, “With our tongue will we prevail;
    our lips are in our control, who is master over us?”

“Because the poor are plundered,
    because the needy sigh,
now I will arise,” says the Lord;
    “I will place him in the safety for which he yearns.”
The words of the Lord are pure words;
    they are silver tried in an earthen furnace
    refined seven times.

You will keep them, O Lord;
    You will preserve them from this generation.
The wicked walk on every side,
    when the worthless of mankind are exalted.
