- Help, LORD, for the godly are no more; the faithful have vanished from among men.
- Everyone lies to his neighbor; their flattering lips speak with deception.
- May the LORD cut off all flattering lips and every boastful tongue
- that says, "We will triumph with our tongues; we own our lips --who is our master?"
- "Because of the oppression of the weak and the groaning of the needy, I will now arise," says the LORD. "I will protect them from those who malign them."
