PSALM 12

3 Outlines

 

Psalm 12

SOUND THE ALARM!

 

When the an alarm sounds it is a warning. A burglar alarm wars of

thieves. A fire alarm warns of fire.  When in the hospital recently, if I

moved the wrong way, an alarm sounded on the I.V., bringing a nurse to

adjust it.  Psalm 12 is alarm that should make Christians alert to danger.

 

A CONCERN - Vss. 1-2 -  "Help Lord; for the godly man ceaseth..."

 

A CONCLUSION - Vss. 3-5 - "The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips..."

 

A COMFORT - Vss. 6-7 - "The words of the Lord are pure words..."

 

A CAUTION - Vs. 8 - "The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest

men are exalted."
