World English Bible
Psalm 12 (WEBP)
 Help, Yahweh; for the godly man ceases. For the faithful fail from among the children of men.
 Everyone lies to his neighbor. They speak with flattering lips, and with a double heart.
 May Yahweh cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that boasts,
 who have said, “With our tongue we will prevail. Our lips are our own. Who is lord over us?”
 “Because of the oppression of the weak and because of the groaning of the needy, I will now arise,” says Yahweh; “I will set him in safety from those who malign him.”
 Yahweh’s words are flawless words, as silver refined in a clay furnace, purified seven times.
 You will keep them, Yahweh. You will preserve them from this generation forever.
 The wicked walk on every side, when what is vile is exalted among the sons of men.

Psalm 12 (KJVS)
 «To the chief Musician H5329 (8764) upon Sheminith H8067, A Psalm H4210 of David H1732.» Help H3467 (8685), LORD H3068; for the godly man H2623 ceaseth H1584 (8804); for the faithful H539 (8803) fail H6461 (8804) from among the children H1121 of men H120.
 They speak H1696 (8762) vanity H7723 every one H376 with his neighbour H7453: [with] flattering H2513 lips H8193 [and] with a double H3820 heart H3820 do they speak H1696 (8762).
 The LORD H3068 shall cut off H3772 (8686) all flattering H2513 lips H8193, [and] the tongue H3956 that speaketh H1696 (8764) proud H1419 things:
 Who have said H559 (8804), With our tongue H3956 will we prevail H1396 (8686); our lips H8193 [are] our own: who [is] lord H113 over us?
 For the oppression H7701 of the poor H6041, for the sighing H603 of the needy H34, now will I arise H6965 (8799), saith H559 (8799) the LORD H3068; I will set H7896 (8799) [him] in safety H3468 [from him that] puffeth H6315 (8686) at him.
 The words H565 of the LORD H3068 [are] pure H2889 words H565: [as] silver H3701 tried H6884 (8803) in a furnace H5948 of earth H776, purified H2212 (8794) seven times H7659.
 Thou shalt keep H8104 (8799) them, O LORD H3068, thou shalt preserve H5341 (8799) them from this H2098 generation H1755 for ever H5769.
 The wicked H7563 walk H1980 (8691) on every side H5439, when the vilest H2149 men H1121 H120 are exalted H7311 (8800).
Young’s Literal Translation
Psalm 12 (YLT)
 Save, Jehovah, for the saintly hath failed, For the stedfast have ceased From the sons of men:
 Vanity they speak each with his neighbour, Lip of flattery! With heart and heart they speak.
 Jehovah doth cut off all lips of flattery, A tongue speaking great things,
 Who said, ‘By our tongue we do mightily: Our lips are our own; who is lord over us?’
 Because of the spoiling of the poor, Because of the groaning of the needy, Now do I arise, saith Jehovah, I set in safety him who doth breathe for it.
 Sayings of Jehovah are pure sayings; Silver tried in a furnace of earth refined sevenfold.
 Thou, O Jehovah, dost preserve them, Thou keepest us from this generation to the age.
 Around the wicked walk continually, According as vileness is exalted by sons of men!
