To the choir director: on the octave. A Psalm of David

Ps 12:1Save, O Jehovah; for the faithful man is no more, / For the trustworthy have vanished from among the sons of men.

Ps 12:2Each man speaks falsehood with his neighbor; / With flattering lips and a double heart they speak.

Ps 12:3May Jehovah cut off all the flattering lips, / The tongue speaking great things,

Ps 12:4Those who said, With our tongue we will prevail; / Our lips are our own: Who is our lord?

Ps 12:5Because of the devastation of the poor, because of the sighing of the needy, / I will now arise, says Jehovah; / I will set him in the safety that he longs for.

Ps 12:6The words of Jehovah are pure words, / Silver refined in a furnace on the earth, / Purified seven times.

Ps 12:7You, O Jehovah, will keep them; / You will guard them from this generation forever.

Ps 12:8The wicked go about all around, / While vileness is exalted among the sons of men.
