Psalms 12 ISR98 [abbreviation] brought to you by [publisher] Learn More



1Save, יהוה, for the kind 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?”
5“Because 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#Ps. 18:30, Ps. 119:140, Prov. 30:4..
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.
