1Help, LORD; for the godly man ceases; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.2They speak vanity every one with his neighbor: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.3The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaks proud things:4Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?5For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, says the LORD; I will set him in safety from him that sneers at him.6The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tested in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.7You shall keep them, O LORD, you shall preserve them from this generation forever.8The wicked prowl on every side, when vile men are exalted.
