Chapter 12


To the Overseer, on the octave. -- A Psalm of David. Save, Jehovah, for the saintly hath failed, For the stedfast have ceased From the sons of men:


Vanity they speak each with his neighbour, Lip of flattery! With heart and heart they speak.


Jehovah doth cut off all lips of flattery, A tongue speaking great things,


Who said, `By our tongue we do mightily: Our lips are our own; who is lord over us?`


Because of the spoiling of the poor, Because of the groaning of the needy, Now do I arise, saith Jehovah, I set in safety him who doth breathe for it.


Sayings of Jehovah are pure sayings; Silver tried in a furnace of earth refined sevenfold.


Thou, O Jehovah, dost preserve them, Thou keepest us from this generation to the age.


Around the wicked walk continually, According as vileness is exalted by sons of men!

Psalms 13
