Psalm 12

2 Save me, O LORD, for the holy ones are no more;

 the faithful have vanished from the sons of men.

 3 They babble vanities, one to another,

 with cunning lips, with divided heart.

4 May the LORD destroy all cunning lips,

 the tongue that utters boastful words,

 5 those who say, “We prevail with our tongue;

 our lips are our own, who is our master?”

6 “For the poor who are oppressed and the needy who groan,

 now will I arise,” says the LORD;

 “I will grant them the salvation for which they long.”

 7 The words of the LORD are words without alloy,

 silver from the furnace, seven times refined.

8 It is you, O LORD, who will keep us safe,

 and protect us forever from this generation.

 9 The wicked prowl on every side,

 while baseness is exalted by the sons of men.
