Psalm 12 - Versions
Psalm 12 Text (WEB)
  1. Help, Yahweh; for the godly man ceases. For the faithful fail from among the children of men.
  2. Everyone lies to his neighbor. They speak with flattering lips, and with a double heart.
  3. May Yahweh cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that boasts,
  4. who have said, "With our tongue we will prevail. Our lips are our own. Who is lord over us?"
  5. "Because of the oppression of the weak and because of the groaning of the needy, I will now arise," says Yahweh; "I will set him in safety from those who malign him."
  6. The words of Yahweh are flawless words, as silver refined in a clay furnace, purified seven times.
  7. You will keep them, Yahweh. You will preserve them from this generation forever.
  8. The wicked walk on every side, when what is vile is exalted among the sons of men. For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by David.

  1. σωσον με κυριε οτι εκλελοιπεν οσιος οτι ωλιγωθησαν αι αληθειαι απο των υιων των

  3. εξολεθρευσαι κυριος παντα τα χειλη τα δολια και γλωσσαν

Psalm 12 Text (Latin)
  1. In finem, pro octava. Psalmus David.
  2. Vana locuti sunt unusquisque ad proximum suum ; labia dolosa, in corde et corde locuti sunt.
  3. Disperdat Dominus universa labia dolosa, et linguam magniloquam.
  4. Qui dixerunt : Linguam nostram magnificabimus ; labia nostra a nobis sunt. Quis noster dominus est ?
  5. Propter miseriam inopum, et gemitum pauperum, nunc exsurgam, dicit Dominus. Ponam in salutari ; fiducialiter agam in eo.
  6. Eloquia Domini, eloquia casta ; argentum igne examinatum, probatum terræ, purgatum septuplum.
  7. Tu, Domine, servabis nos, et custodies nos a generatione hac in æternum.
  8. In circuitu impii ambulant : secundum altitudinem tuam multiplicasti filios hominum.
Psalm 12 Text (KJV)
  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 neighbour: 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.
