Salvum me fac
1 Help me, O Lord, for there is no godly one left;*
for the faithful have vanished from among the children of men.
2 They speak falsely, every one with his neighbor;*
they flatter with their lips and deceive with a double heart.
3 The Lord shall root out all deceitful lips*
and the tongues that speak proud things,
4 Which have said, "With our tongue will we prevail;*
our lips are our own; who is lord over us?"
5 "Now because of the trouble of the needy*
and because of the deep sighing of the poor,
6 I will rise up," says the Lord,*
"and will give help to every one who longs for it."
7 The words of the Lord are pure words, even as silver that is tried in the furnace,*
and as gold that is purified seven times in the fire.
8 Preserve us, O Lord, and save us*
from this perverse and evil generation.
9 The ungodly walk on every side*
when wickedness is exalted among the children of men.
