Psalm 12:4-6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

II

May the Lord cut off all deceiving lips,
    and every boastful tongue,
Those who say, “By our tongues we prevail;
    when our lips speak, who can lord it over us?”

III

“Because they rob the weak, and the needy groan,
    I will now arise,” says the Lord;
    “I will grant safety to whoever longs for it.”

Psalm 12:4-6 New International Version (NIV)

those who say,
    “By our tongues we will prevail;
    our own lips will defend us—who is lord over us?”

“Because the poor are plundered and the needy groan,
    I will now arise,” says the Lord.
    “I will protect them from those who malign them.”
And the words of the Lord are flawless,
    like silver purified in a crucible,
    like gold[a] refined seven times.
