For the faithful have vanished from among mankind.
They speak with flattering lips and with a double heart.
and the tongue that speaks boastful things,
Our lips are our own. Who is our master?”
and because of the groaning of the needy,
I will now arise,” says Yahweh;
“I will set him in safety from those who malign him.”
like silver refined in a clay furnace,
purified seven times.
You will guard them from this generation forever.
as what is vile among mankind is exalted.
