PSALMS 12 SIGNS, SEVERITY and SALVATION

SIGNS OF DECLENSION V.1-2

DECLINE IN CHARACTER  Help, Lord; for the godly man ceases; for the

                                                       faithful fail from among the children of men.

DECAY IN COMMUNICATION
FUTILITY                  they speak vanity every one with his neighbor
FLATTERY                with flattering lips
FABRICATION         and with a double heart do they speak.

SEVERITY FOR THE DEROGATORY V.3-4

ENTICEMENTS ARE EXTINGUISHED The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips,
HAUGHTINESS IS HALTED                     and the tongue that proud things
CONCEIT IS CANCELLED                         who have said, with our will we prevail
ARROGANCE IS ARRESTED                    our lips are our who is Lord over us?

SALVATION FOR THE DOWNTRODDEN V.5-7

THE POOR ARE PLUNDERED                  for the oppression of the poor
THE DESTITUTE ARE DESPERATE        for the sighing of the needy
THE PROMISE WILL BE PERFORMED now will I arise, says the Lord; I will set

                                                                              him in safety from him that puffs at him.
GOD’S PROMISES ARE:
PERFECT AND PURE                The words of The Lord are pure words
TESTED AND TRUE                   as silver tried in a furnace of earth purified 7 times
GOD’S PROTECTIONS ARE:
SECURE AND STABILIZING     You will keep them, O Lord You will preserve them
ENDURING TO ETERNITY        from this generation forever
THE PERVERSE ARE PROWLING The wicked walk on every side
DEPRAVITY IS DIGNIFIED          when the vilest men are exalted.
