Full Text

1 Save O Jehovah now because
The godly one doth cease;
For from among the sons of men
The faithful do decrease.
2 Unto his neighbor every one
Speaks lying vanities:
They with a flattering lip do speak:
With double heart likewise.

3 Jehovah shall cut off e'en all
The lips of flatterings,
And he shall cut off every tongue
Which boasteth of great things.
4 Which thus have said, we with our tongues
Prevailing power shall get,
Are not our lips our own? for who
Lord over us is set?

5 Thus saith the Lord, for sighs of them
That want, for poor oppressed,
I now will rise, from such as puff
At him, will give him rest.
6 Jehovah's words, pure words they be
As silver that is tried
In earthen furnace, seven times
That hath been purified.

7 Thou shalt them keep, O Lord thou shalt
Preserve them every one,
For evermore in safety from
This generation.
8 The wicked men on every side
Do walk presumptuously,
When vileness by the sons of men
Exalted is on high.

The Psalm, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs of the Old and New-Testament,1742
