It will not return to me empty,

but delight in airing their own opinions.
Save me, Lord,
from lying lips
and from deceitful tongues.

but mere talk leads only to poverty.

and your lips from telling lies.

but the heart of the wicked is of little value.
Speak up and judge fairly;
defend the rights of the poor and needy.
