Psalm 12 KJV

King James Version, Holy Bible

Help, Lord; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.

They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.

The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things:

Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?

For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the Lord; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.

The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.

Psalms Chapter 12 Devotional

Have you ever felt all alone doing the right thing?

Have you ever felt like some people prosper doing the wrong things, and you do not prosper while doing the right thing?

Well, God, in His wisdom, inspired the psalmist to pen this particular scripture to give us the understanding that He is righteous. And even when it seems like people prosper in their way God will eventually arise, because you see, the cup of their iniquity has to become full before God performs his judgment.

God is very merciful. And so you can look at somebody and say, "Okay, they're doing evil and God is not doing anything."

No, you have to understand that God is desiring for them to turn from their ways.

But if they do not, there comes a time when God will arise and vindicate His people. And here in this Scripture we see the psalmist say for the godly man ceases, meaning there is no person that would seek to live godly and faithful feel from all among the children of men.

But we see that the Lord shall cut off the flattering lips and the tongue that speaks proud things. God essentially arises. And sometimes when you're doing the right thing, you don't see the good out of it.

But this is what we know from another Psalm: I've never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed, begging for bread.

God will arise; he will arise and do good.

The Bible says that his words are pure words. His words are true words.

Sometimes people speak vileness out of their lips, and the wicked people seem to prosper, but God will arise to do good unto you.

Though the wicked prowl and the wicked strut, God will arise.

Though the wicked speak falsehood, and it seems as if their ways are prospering, God will arise.

For the Bible in psalm 12 says that He shall stop the flattering lips

In Psalm 12 The Scripture also says that he will set in safety, the one who is poor and needy, against the ones who are prideful against him. You know, sometimes the wicked think that they can do whatever they want to do with those who are of less estate.

But God fights the cause of the poor and the needy.

You see, when you humble yourself by the power of the Holy Spirit, you put yourself in that kind of a position and when God sees that He arises on your behalf. God will arise on your behalf, vindicate you and protect you. Only put your trust in Him, keeping His commandments and you will see the salvation of the Lord.
