1 1 For the director of music. For sheminith. A psalm of David.
Help, Lord! Those who do what is right are gone. Those who are faithful have disappeared from the earth.
2 All people tell lies to their neighbors. With their lips they praise others, but they don't really mean it.
3 May the Lord cut off all lips that don't mean what they say. May he cut out every tongue that brags.
4 They say, "We will win the battle with our tongues. Our lips belong to us. No one else is in charge of us."
5 The Lord says, "The weak are beaten down. Those who are in need groan. So I will stand up to help them. I will keep them safe from those who tell lies about them."
6 The words of the Lord are perfect. They are like silver made pure in a clay furnace. They are like silver made pure seven times over.
7 Lord, you will keep us safe. You will always keep sinners from hurting us.
8 Proud and sinful people walk around openly when the evil they do is praised by others.
