Psalm 12 *The Words of Jehovah Are Pure Words*

Chapter 12 *The Words of Jehovah Are Pure Words*

א לַמְנַצֵּחַ עַל-הַשְּׁמִינִית, מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד. 1

For the Leader; on the Sheminith. A Psalm of David.

ב הוֹשִׁיעָה יְהוָה, כִּי-גָמַר חָסִיד: כִּי-פַסּוּ אֱמוּנִים, מִבְּנֵי אָדָם. 2

Help, jehovah; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the sons of men.

*The Words of Jehovah Are Pure Words*

ג שָׁוְא, יְדַבְּרוּ–אִישׁ אֶת-רֵעֵהוּ: שְׂפַת חֲלָקוֹת–בְּלֵב וָלֵב יְדַבֵּרוּ. 3

They speak falsehood every one with his neighbour; with flattering lip, and with a double heart, do they speak.

*The Words of Jehovah Are Pure Words*

ד יַכְרֵת יְהוָה, כָּל-שִׂפְתֵי חֲלָקוֹת– לָשׁוֹן, מְדַבֶּרֶת גְּדֹלוֹת. 4

May jehovah cut off all flattering lips, the tongue that speaketh proud things!

*The Words of Jehovah Are Pure Words*

ה אֲשֶׁר אָמְרוּ, לִלְשֹׁנֵנוּ נַגְבִּיר–שְׂפָתֵינוּ אִתָּנוּ: מִי אָדוֹן לָנוּ. 5

Who have said:

‘Our tongue will we make mighty; our lips are with us:

who is lord over us?’

*The Words of Jehovah Are Pure Words*

ו מִשֹּׁד עֲנִיִּים, מֵאֶנְקַת אֶבְיוֹנִים:

עַתָּה אָקוּם, יֹאמַר יְהוָה; אָשִׁית בְּיֵשַׁע, יָפִיחַ לוֹ. 6

‘For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, {N}

now will I arise’,

saith jehovah;

‘I will set him in safety at whom they puff.’

*The Words of Jehovah Are Pure Words*

ז אִמְרוֹת יְהוָה, אֲמָרוֹת טְהֹרוֹת:

כֶּסֶף צָרוּף, בַּעֲלִיל לָאָרֶץ; מְזֻקָּק, שִׁבְעָתָיִם. 7

The words of jehovah are pure words, {N}

as silver tried in a crucible on the earth, refined seven times.

*The Words of Jehovah Are Pure Words*

ח אַתָּה-יְהוָה תִּשְׁמְרֵם; תִּצְּרֶנּוּ, מִן-הַדּוֹר זוּ לְעוֹלָם. 8

Thou wilt keep them, O jehovah; Thou wilt preserve us from this generation for ever.

*The Words of Jehovah Are Pure Words*

ט סָבִיב, רְשָׁעִים יִתְהַלָּכוּן; כְּרֻם זֻלּוּת, לִבְנֵי אָדָם. 9

The wicked walk on every side, when vileness is exalted among the sons of men. {P}
