Psalm 12 - Promise of a Mighty God
"The LORD replies, 'I have seen
the violence done to the helpless,
and I have heard the groans
of the poor.
Now I will rise up to rescue them,
as they have longed for me to do.'
The LORD's promises are pure,
like silver refined in a furnace,
purified seven times over.
Therefore, LORD, we know you will
protect the oppressed,
preserving them forever from this
even though the wicked strut about,
and evil is praised throughout
