Psalms Chapter 12 | Parsha:

1 For the leader; on the sheminith. A psalm of David.

2Help, O Lord!
For the faithful are no more;
the loyal have vanished from among men.

3Men speak lies to one another;
their speech is smooth;
they talk with duplicity.

4May the Lord cut off all flattering lips,
every tongue that speaks arrogance.

5They say, “By our tongues we shall prevail;
with lips such as ours, who can be our master?”

6“Because of the groans of the plundered poor and needy,
I will now act,” says the Lord.
“I will give help,” He affirms to him.

7The words of the Lord are pure words,
silver purged in an earthen crucible,
refined sevenfold.

8You, O Lord, will keep them,
guarding each from this age evermore.

9On every side the wicked roam
when baseness is exalted among men.
