O Heer wilt myn behouwen,
die heylige is vergaen,
die waerheyden vercouwen
zy worden te niet gedaen:
al van der menschen kindren
boos seer weinich v betrouwen,
seer weinich hier altoes.

(Nieuwe Bijbel Vertaling)
Grijp in, HEER!
Niemand is nog trouw,
geen mens spreekt nog waarheid.
Ze beliegen elkaar allemaal,
vals en verraderlijk is hun woord.

(King James)
Help, LORD;
for the godly man ceaseth;
for the faithful fail from among the children of men.
They speak vanity every one with his neighbour:
[with] flattering lips
[and] with a double heart do they speak.
