Yahweh promises to help the poor (Ps 12:5-12:6)

“‘The poor are despoiled.

Because the needy groan,

I will now rise up.’

Says Yahweh.

‘I will place them in the safety for which they long.’

The promises of Yahweh

Are promises that are pure.

The promises of Yahweh are silver refined

In a furnace on the ground,

Purified seven times.”

The pure are troubled as the needy groan. However, Yahweh hears them and promises to bring them to safety. What is great about this is that the promises of Yahweh are like refined purified silver. You do not have to worry about them. Yahweh never lies. He will come to the rescue of the poor.
