1 Save me O Jehovah for no godly person is left. Faithful people have vanished from among the sons of men.
2 People speak lies to one another. They speak with flattering lips and with double-heart. Double Heart: They say one thing but mean another.
3 Jehovah will destroy every flattering lip and every bragging tongue
4 They say: »We will overcome with our tongues. With lips such as ours, who can be our master?«
5 »Because oppressed people are robbed and needy people groan, I will now arise,« says Jehovah. »I will provide safety for those who long for it.«
6 The words of Jehovah are pure, like silver refined in a furnace on the earth and purified seven times.
7 O Jehovah, you will protect them. You will keep each one safe from those people forever.
8 The wicked walk about when immorality increases among the sons of men.
