God, a Helper against the Treacherous.

For the choir director; upon F113 an eight-stringed lyre. A Psalm of David.

1 Help, LORD, for the R266 godly man ceases to be,

For the faithful disappear from among the sons of men.

2 They speak R267 falsehood F114 to one another;

With flattering R268 lips F115 and with a double heart they speak.

3 May the LORD cut off all flattering lips,

The tongue that speaks R269 great things;

4 Who have R270 said, "With our tongue we will prevail;

Our lips are our F116 own; who is lord over us?"

5 "Because of the devastation R271 of the afflicted, because of the groaning of the needy,

Now I R272 will arise," says the LORD; "I will set R273 him in the safety for which he longs."

6 The words R274 of the LORD are pure words;

As silver tried R275 in a furnace on the earth, refined seven times.

7 You, O LORD, will keep them;

You will preserve R276 him from this generation forever.

8 The wicked R277 strut about on every side

When vileness R278 F117 is exalted among the sons of men.

F113: Or poor
F114: Or May You seek
F115: Or afflicted
F116: Lit judge
F117: Or fixed
