Psalm 12 (Contemporary English Version)
Contemporary English Version (CEV)

 

A Prayer for Help

1Please help me, LORD!

 

All who were faithful

 

and all who were loyal

 

have disappeared.

 

2Everyone tells lies,

 

and no one is sincere.

 

3Won’t you chop off

 

all flattering tongues

 

that brag so loudly?

 

4They say to themselves,

 

“We are great speakers.

 

No one else has a chance.”

 

5But you, LORD, tell them,

 

“I will do something!

 

The poor are mistreated

 

and helpless people moan.

 

I’ll rescue all who suffer.”

 

6Our LORD, you are true

 

to your promises,

 

and your word is like silver

 

heated seven times

 

in a fiery furnace.

7You will protect us

 

and always keep us safe

 

from those people.

 

8But all who are wicked

 

will keep on strutting,

 

while everyone praises

 

their shameless deeds.

 

 

Psalm 12:1 And He does!!! Faithfully, always!!

Psalm 12:2 Are we always sincere when we chat with other people?
Jesus was a truly genuine, honest, truthful, warm, friendly, genuine and approachable type of man. He always put others before himself.

Psalm 12:5 God sees how the helpless and poor are treated and He promises to help them.
In a testimony I heard recently He allowed the path of a homeless person to be crossed with a samatian type lady who brought the helpless, depressed lady into her home, feed her, clothed her and worked in her life until she was back on her feet.

Psalm 12:6 What God says He means. His words are faultless. His words are a exact mirror image of whom He is…He is His word.
I read that “when silver is being refined, the layers have to be taken off (such as with us, we must be refined through firey trials). After the final layer is removed, the refiner looks upon the silver and its like a mirror, he can see his own face. So the refiner sees himself in the silver’s reflection…so like us as God refines us, when we are refined God will look upon us and see Himself.” (Jenny on http://www.oneyearbibleblog.com/2007/01/january_14th_on.htm)

Psalm 12:7 He protects us and keeps us safe. We can run to Him knowing we will be protected.

Psalm 12:8 This is the way today’s society is. Everything is topsy-turvy the wicked are respected and the immoral acts are called good while the good is called bad.

    Good thoughts! I like that thought that His words are an exact mirror image of who He is.

    Thank you for your post. The last verse reminds me of Hollywood. How idolized they are and respected they are..yet how worldly they are.
