Psalm 12:1-8 NIV

Psalm 12:1-8 NIV [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.
