Psalm 12 The Message
A David Psalm
1-2 Quick, God, I need your helping hand! The last decent person just went down,
All the friends I depended on gone.
Everyone talks in lie language;
Lies slide off their oily lips.
They doubletalk with forked tongues.
3-4 Slice their lips off their faces! Pull
The braggart tongues from their mouths!
I'm tired of hearing, "We can talk anyone into anything!
Our lips manage the world."
5 Into the hovels of the poor,
Into the dark streets where the homeless groan, God speaks:
"I've had enough; I'm on my way
To heal the ache in the heart of the wretched."
6-8 God's words are pure words,
Pure silver words refined seven times
In the fires of his word-kiln,
Pure on earth as well as in heaven.
God, keep us safe from their lies,
From the wicked who stalk us with lies,
From the wicked who collect honors
For their wonderful lies.
Food For Thought: Indeed God's Words are pure here on Earth and in Heaven...
God's Word's are pure and undefiled unlike the words of the wicked which destroy...
God's Word's Edify and Build up wherever and to whom they touch....
The wicked's word's tear down and destroy all who come in contact with them...
Thought for the Day:
I'd rather be touched with the Pure Undefiled Word's of God which Edify and Build me up in the Faith than to be torn down and destroyed by the word's of the wicked!
