Tehilim Chapter 12

tehilim 012


1. To the chief Musician, according to the Sheminith, A Psalm of David.
2. Help Lord, for the pious man ceases; for the faithful vanish from among the children of men.
3. They speak vanity every one with his neighbor; with flattering lips and with a double heart they speak.
4. The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaks arrogant things;
5. Who have said, With our tongue we will prevail; our lips are our own; who is lord over us?
6. For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, said the Lord; I will set him in safety at whom they hiss.
7. The words of the Lord are pure words; like silver refined in a furnace upon the ground, purified seven times.
8. You shall keep them, O Lord, you shall preserve them from this generation forever.
9. The wicked walk on every side, when vileness is exalted among the son of men.
