The Book of Psalms
Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful vanish from among the children of men.
2 They speak lies every one unto his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.
3 May the LORD 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 groaning of the needy, now will I arise, saith the LORD; I will set him in the safety for which he longeth.
6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of clay, 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 that which is vile is exalted among the children of men.
