Psalms 12 GNB
” Help us, Lord! There is not a good person left; honest people can no longer be found. All of them lie to one another; they deceive each other with flattery. Silence those flattering tongues, O Lord! Close those boeastful mouths that say, “With our words we get what we want. We wll say what we wish, and no one can stop us.”
“But now I will come,” says the Lord, “because the needy are oppressed and the persecuted groan in pain. I will give them the security they long for.” The promises of the Lord can be trusted; thay are genuine as silver refined seven times in the furnace. The wicked are everywhere, and everyone praises what is evil. Keep us always safe, O Lord, and preserve us from such people.” Amen!
