Psalm 12. Salvum me fac.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - The Second Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. HELP me, Lord, for there is not one godly man left; *
    for the faithful are minished from among the children of men.
  2. They talk of vanity every one with his neighbour; *
    they do but flatter with their lips, and dissemble in their double heart.
  3. The Lord shall root out all deceitful lips, *
    and the tongue that speaketh proud things;
  4. Which have said, With our tongue will we prevail; *
    we are they that ought to speak; who is lord over us?
  5. Now, for the comfortless troubles' sake of the needy, *
    and because of the deep sighing of the poor,
  6. I will up, saith the Lord; *
    and will help every one from him that swelleth against him, and will set him at rest.
  7. The words of the Lord are pure words; *
    even as the silver which from the earth is tried, and purified seven times in the fire.
  8. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord; *
    thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
  9. The ungodly walk on every side: *
    when they are exalted, the children of men are put to rebuke.
* An asterisk divides a verse of a Psalm in two portions for responsive reading
