Yahweh will protect us (Ps 12:7-12: 8)

“Yahweh!

You will protect us!

You will guard us from this generation forever.

On every side

The wicked prowl.

As vileness is exalted among humankind.”

Now there is a direct appeal to Yahweh. Yahweh will protect the faithful ones and guard them from this wicked generation. These wicked people prowl around as their vileness is exalted everywhere. So ends this short psalm with a confident cry to Yahweh.
