Tehillim 12:4-6 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

(5) Who have said, With leshoneinu (our tongue) will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is Adon over us?

(6) For the oppression of the aniyim, for the groaning of the needy, now will I arise, saith Hashem; I will set him in safety from him that sneers at him.

(7) The words of Hashem are amarot tehorot (pure words); as kesef refined in the furnace on the earth, purified seven times.

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.
