Psalm 12

Proud Words vs. Pure Words

Heading

For the choir director. According to sheminith.[a] A psalm by David.

The Proud Words of the Ungodly

Save us, Lord, for the merciful have disappeared.
The faithful have vanished from among mankind.

Everyone speaks falsehood to his neighbor.
Their flattering lips speak double-talk.[b]
May the Lord cut off all flattering lips.
May he cut off every tongue that speaks boastfully,

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 12:1 Sheminith is apparently derived from the Hebrew word for eight. It may refer to an eight-stringed instrument, to the bass voice, to low-pitched stringed instruments, or, most likely, to a method for tuning a stringed instrument (1 Chronicles 15:21).
  2. Psalm 12:2 Literally speak with a heart and a heart
