080411 Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth

“Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.  They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.  The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things: who have said, ‘With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?’   ‘For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise’, saith the LORD; ‘I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.’   The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.  Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, Thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.   The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.”  Psalm 12:1-8 (KJV)
