Psalm 12

Psalm 12 is the 12th psalm from the Book of Psalms.

 1 Help, Lord, for no one is faithful anymore; 
   those who are loyal have vanished from the human race.
 2 Everyone lies to their neighbor;
   they flatter with their lips
   but harbor deception in their hearts.
 3 May the Lord silence all flattering lips 
   and every boastful tongue— 
 4 those who say,
   “By our tongues we will prevail; 
   our own lips will defend us—who is lord over us?”
 5 “Because the poor are plundered and the needy groan, 
   I will now arise, ” says the Lord.
   “I will protect them from those who malign them.”
 6 And the words of the Lord are flawless, 
   like silver purified in a crucible, 
   like gold refined seven times.
 7 You, Lord, will keep the needy safe 
   and will protect us forever from the wicked, 
 8 who freely strut about
   when what is vile is honored by the human race.
