To the chief Musician ∥ upon Sheminith, A l’salm of David.
1∥ Help, Lord; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.
2 They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with † a double heart do they speak.
3 The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh † proud things:
4 Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips †are our own: who is lord over us?
5 For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the Lord; I will set him in safety from him that∥ puffeth at him.
6 The words of the Lordare pure words: *as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
7 Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve † them from this generation for ever.
8 The wicked walk on every side, when † the vilest men are exalted.
