1: Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men. edit

2: They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak. edit

3: The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things: edit

4: Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us? edit

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. edit

6: The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. edit

7: Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever. edit

8: The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted. edit
