Psalm 12
Brenton Septuagint Translation

Help, for the Godly Are No More

1For the end, A Psalm of David, upon the eighth. Save me, O Lord; for the godly man has failed; for truth is diminished from among the children of men.

2Every one has spoken vanity to his neighbour: their lips are deceitful, they have spoken with a double heart.

3Let the Lord destroy all the deceitful lips, and the tongue that speaks great words:

4who have said, We will magnify our tongue; our lips are our own: who is Lord of us?

5Because of the misery of the poor, and because of the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the Lord, I will set them in safety; I will speak to them thereof openly.

6The oracles of the Lord are pure oracles; as silver tried in the fire, proved in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

7Thou, O Lord, shalt keep us, and shalt preserve us, from this generation, and for ever.

8The ungodly walk around: according to thy greatness thou has greatly exalted the sons of men.
