For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be accompanied by an eight-stringed instrument.*
The faithful have vanished from the earth!
speaking with flattering lips and deceitful hearts.
and silence their boastful tongues.
Our lips are our own—who can stop us?”
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.”
like silver refined in a furnace,
purified seven times over.
preserving them forever from this lying generation,
and evil is praised throughout the land.
12 Hebrew according to the sheminith.
