Psalm 12:1-Psalm 13:1 - Oppression By The Wicked
1 For the choir director: according to Sheminith.
the loyal have disappeared from the human race.
they speak with flattering lips and deceptive hearts.
and the tongue that speaks boastfully.
our lips are our own—who can be our master?”
and the groaning of the poor,
I will now rise up,” says the Lord.
“I will put the one who longs for it in a safe place.”
like silver refined in an earthen furnace,
purified seven times.
1 For the choir director. A Davidic psalm.
How long will You hide Your face from me?
