King James BibleBerean Study Bible
1To the chief Musician upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David. Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.1For the choirmaster. According to Sheminith. A Psalm of David. Help, O LORD, for the godly are no more; the faithful have vanished from among men.
2They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.2They lie to one another; they speak with flattering lips and a double heart.
3The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things:3May the LORD cut off all flattering lips and every boastful tongue.
4Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?4They say, “With our tongues we will prevail. We own our lips—who can be our master?”
5For 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.5“For the cause of the oppressed and for the groaning of the needy, I will now arise,” says the LORD. “I will bring safety to him who yearns.”
6The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.6The words of the LORD are flawless, like silver refined in a furnace, like gold purified sevenfold.
7Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.7You, O LORD, will keep us; You will forever guard us from this generation.
8The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.8The wicked wander freely, and vileness is exalted among men.
