Chapter 12

1

For the chief music-maker on the Sheminith. A Psalm. Of David.
Send help, Lord, for mercy has come to an end; there is no more faith among the children of men.

2

Everyone says false words to his neighbour: their tongues are smooth in their talk, and their hearts are full of deceit.

3

The smooth lips and the tongue of pride will be cut off by the Lord.

4

They have said, With our tongues will we overcome; our lips are ours: who is lord over us?

5

Because of the crushing of the poor and the weeping of those in need, now will I come to his help, says the Lord; I will give him the salvation which he is desiring.

6

The words of the Lord are true words: like silver tested by fire and burned clean seven times.

7

You will keep them, O Lord, you will keep them safe from this generation for ever.

8

The sinners are walking on every side, and evil is honoured among the children of men.

Psalms 13
