Psalm 12:1-2 Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)

Plea for Help in Evil Times

To the choirmaster: according to The Sheminith. A Psalm of David.

    for the faithful have vanished from among the sons of men.
Every one utters lies to his neighbor;
    with flattering lips and a double heart they speak.

For the director of music. According to sheminith.[b] A psalm of David.
