诗篇 12

祈求上帝帮助

大卫的诗,交给乐长。

1耶和华啊,求你救我们!
因为世上的敬虔人不见了,
忠信的人在人间消失了。
人人谎话连篇,
花言巧语,口是心非。
愿你铲除一切花言巧语和狂妄自夸的人。
他们说:“我们必靠舌头制胜,
嘴唇是我们自己的,
谁管得着我们?”
耶和华说:“我要保护受欺压的困苦人和哀叹的贫穷人,
使他们如愿以偿。”
耶和华的应许纯全,
就像在炉中炼过七次的银子。
耶和华啊,你必保护我们,
永远不容恶人侵害我们。
众人若抑善扬恶,
恶人必横行无忌。

New Living Translation

Psalm 12

Psalm 12

For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be accompanied by an eight-stringed instrument.[a]

Help, O Lord, for the godly are fast disappearing!
    The faithful have vanished from the earth!
Neighbors lie to each other,
    speaking with flattering lips and deceitful hearts.
May the Lord cut off their flattering lips
    and silence their boastful tongues.
They say, “We will lie to our hearts’ content.
    Our lips are our own—who can stop us?”

The Lord replies, “I have seen violence done to the helpless,
    and I have heard the groans of the poor.
Now I will rise up to rescue them,
    as they have longed for me to do.”
The Lord’s promises are pure,
    like silver refined in a furnace,
    purified seven times over.
Therefore, Lord, we know you will protect the oppressed,
    preserving them forever from this lying generation,
even though the wicked strut about,
    and evil is praised throughout the land.
