Psalm 12
Brenton's Septuagint Translation Par ▾ 

The Godly Are No More

1(11:1) For 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.

2(11:2) Every one has spoken vanity to his neighbour: their lips are deceitful, they have spoken with a double heart.

3(11:3) Let the Lord destroy all the deceitful lips, and the tongue that speaks great words:

4(11:4) who have said, We will magnify our tongue; our lips are our own: who is Lord of us?

5(11:5) Because 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.

6(11:6) The oracles of the Lord are pure oracles; as silver tried in the fire, proved in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

7(11:7) Thou, O Lord, shalt keep us, and shalt preserve us, from this generation, and for ever.

8(11:8) The ungodly walk around: according to thy greatness thou has greatly exalted the sons of men.

The English translation of The Septuagint by Sir Lancelot Charles Lee Brenton (1851)
