Human Faithlessness and God’s Faithfulness

For the music director; on the Sheminith.[a] A psalm of David.[b]

12 Save, O Yahweh, for the pious have ceased to be;

from among the children of humankind.
They speak falseness to each other.[c]
With flattering lips,
with a double heart[d] they speak.
May Yahweh cut off all flattering lips,
the tongue speaking great boasts—
