Psalm 12


1: Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.

2: They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.

3: The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things:

4: Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?

5: For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the LORD; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.

6: The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

7: Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

8: The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.


not being hypocritical or insincere or two-faced

not speaking vanity to my fellow man

speaking like the LORD, pure words
