The Faithful Are Vanishing!

This is how King David once felt about his people! What about ours?

Psalm 12

To the choirmaster: according to The Sheminith.1 A Psalm of David.

12:1   Save, O LORD, for the godly one is gone; for the faithful have vanished from among the children of man 2   Everyone utters lies to his neighbor; with flattering lips and a double heart they speak. 3   May the LORD cut off all flattering lips, the tongue that makes great boasts, 4   those who say, “With our tongue we will prevail, our lips are with us; who is master over us?” 5   “Because the poor are plundered, because the needy groan, I will now arise,” says the LORD; “I will place him in the safety for which he longs.” 6   The words of the LORD are pure words, like silver refined in a furnace on the ground, purified seven times. 7   You, O LORD, will keep them; you will guard us2 from this generation forever. 8   On every side the wicked prowl, as vileness is exalted among the children of man.
