Save me O Lord, for the godly one has ceased,
and the truths have diminished from the children of men.
Every one has spoken vanities to his friend.
Deceiving lips are in their hearts, and thus they have spoken with their hearts.
The Lord shall wipe out every deceiving lip, and every tongue that speaks great words;
those who have said, “We will magnify our tongues; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?”
“Because of the misery of the poor and the sighing of the oppressed, now I will rise,”
says the Lord. “I will set them in salvation, and I will be revealed in it.”
(Psalm 11:1-6, Septuagint)
