Psalm 12

1 Save, O Lord, for the godly one is gone;
for the faithful have vanished from among the children of man.
2 Everyone utters lies to his neighbor;
with flattering lips and a double heart they speak.

3 May the Lord cut off all flattering lips,
the tongue that makes great boasts,
4 those who say, “With our tongue we will prevail,
our lips are with us; who is master over us?”

5 “Because the poor are plundered, because the needy groan,
I will now arise,” says the Lord;
“I will place him in the safety for which he longs.”
6 The words of the Lord are pure words,
like silver refined in a furnace on the ground,
purified seven times.

7 You, O Lord, will keep them;
you will guard us from this generation forever.
8 On every side the wicked prowl,
as vileness is exalted among the children of man.

1 «Al Músico principal: sobre Seminit: Salmo de David» Salva, oh Jehová, porque se acabaron los piadosos; porque han desaparecido los fieles de entre los hijos de los hombres. 2 Mentira habla cada uno con su prójimo; Hablan con labios lisonjeros y con doblez de corazón. 3 Jehová destruirá todos los labios lisonjeros, y la lengua que habla soberbias; 4 los que han dicho: Por nuestra lengua prevaleceremos; nuestros labios son nuestros; ¿quién es señor sobre nosotros?

5 Por la opresión de los pobres, por el gemido de los necesitados, ahora me levantaré, dice Jehová; los pondré a salvo del que contra ellos se engríe.

6 Las palabras de Jehová son palabras puras; como plata refinada en horno de tierra, purificada siete veces. 7 Tú, Jehová, las guardarás; las preservarás de esta generación para siempre. 8 Asediando andan los malos, cuando son exaltados los más viles de los hijos de los hombres.

I cry this same prayer today Lord. I cry for the innocent people in Syria that have so much chaos around them. I cry out Oh Lord, that you would awaken the people who are walking in sin and wickedness, that You would put items or people in their path that would help them repent and turn to You. God, You are so Great and Mighty. Your will be done. Yes, only Your will be done.
