May The Lord Deliver You And Bless You
Help the righteous
For the godly man ceases
The evil and proud
Boast about their
And mock your people
You are our help, provider
Deliver and bless your people
So that your name will be
Psalm 12 New King James Version (NKJV)
Man’s Treachery and God’s Constancy
12 Help,b]”>[b] Lord, for the godly man ceases!
For the faithful disappear from among the sons of men.
2 They speak idly everyone with his neighbor;
With flattering lips and c]”>[c]a double heart they speak.
5 “For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy,
Now I will arise,” says the Lord;
“I will set him in the safety for which he yearns.”
6 The words of the Lord are pure words,
Like silver tried in a furnace of earth,
Purified seven times.
7 You shall keep them, O Lord,
You shall preserve them from this generation forever.
8 The wicked prowl on every side,
When vileness is exalted among the sons of men.
