The Psalms

A Prayer for Help against the Wicked
To the chief Musician upon Shem'inith, A Psalm of David.

1  Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth;
for the faithful fail from among the children of men.
2  They speak vanity every one with his neighbor:
with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.
3  The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips,
and the tongue that speaketh proud things:
4  who have said, With our tongue will we prevail;
our lips are our own: who is lord over us?
5  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.
6  The words of the LORD are pure words:
as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
7  Thou shalt keep them, O LORD,
thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
8  The wicked walk on every side,
when the vilest men are exalted.
