Psalms 12

For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be accompanied by an eight-stringed instrument. [1] 
 1  Help, O LORD, for the godly are fast disappearing!
  The faithful have vanished from the earth!
 2  Neighbors lie to each other,
  speaking with flattering lips and deceitful hearts.
 3  May the LORD cut off their flattering lips
  and silence their boastful tongues.
 4  They say, "We will lie to our hearts' content.
  Our lips are our own—who can stop us?"

 5  The LORD replies, "I have seen violence done to the helpless,
  and I have heard the groans of the poor.
Now I will rise up to rescue them,
  as they have longed for me to do."
 6  "The LORD's promises are pure, like silver refined in a furnace, purified seven times over."  7  Therefore, LORD, we know you will protect the oppressed,
  preserving them forever from this lying generation,
 8  even though the wicked strut about,
  and evil is praised throughout the land.
