With their lips, they praise others, but they don’t really mean it.
May the Lord close the lips of those who don’t mean what they say. May He stop every tongue that brags.
The Lord will stand up for the poor and those who are in need. He will keep them safe from those who tell lies about them.
The Lord’s words are perfect. They are like silver made pure in a clay furnace. They are like gold made pure 7 times over.
The Lord keeps needy people safe. He will always keep sinners from hurting them.
Proud and sinful people walk around openly when their evil deeds are praised.
