Tehillim (Psalms) 12
1Save, יהוה, for the lovingly-committed one is no more! For the trustworthy have ceased from among the sons of men.
2They speak falsehood with each other; They speak with flattering lips, a double heart.
3יהוה does cut off all flattering lips, A tongue that speaks swelling words,
4Who have said, “With our tongue we do mightily; Our lips are our own; Who is master over us?”
5Because of the oppression of the poor, because of the sighing of the needy, I now arise, says יהוה, “I set in safety – he pants for it.”
6The Words of יהוה are clean Words, Silver tried in a furnace of earth, Refined seven times.#See Psa. 18:30; Psa. 119:140; Pro. 30:5
7You guard them, O יהוה, You preserve them from this generation forever.
8The wrong walk around on every side, When worthlessness is exalted among the sons of men.
