Psalm 12:6-7 (KJB) The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
To properly understand the message found in this Psalm, one must comprehend the meaning of the words preserve and forever. They do not mean this message will be around for just a little while, or available for some time. The word forever. In the context of the promised preservation of the Word of God, means that His unadulterated message will last throughout all generations or ages. The same cannot be declared about any modernized versions mankind has put together today. These new and updated versions will undoubtedly be subject to age and time. Mankind will likely desire to continually update and revamp the message found in modern Bibles as time wears on in this world.
God tells us a lot about the permanency and spiritual stability of His Word in this Psalm:
The words of the Lord are pure.
His words have been tried and tested in fire, not once but seven times.
God has promised to preserve His Words forever.
However, these truths are not the same as the adulterated message found in updated versions. There are some startling changes created in both the language and the skewed context, including:
The words of Jehova, The words are flawless, rather than as was simply stated by God: “The words of the LORD are pure words…” leaving no question concerning the spotlessness or purity of His Word.
The words are purified in a crucible, or are refined in a furnace on the ground which carries a far different meaning than that which God inspired: “as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times…”
The Lord will keep the needy safe, The Lord will offer protection from the wicked one, or the Lord will keep them is far removed from that which God-breathed: “O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever…” this is concerning the very words of God and not in reference to the personal safety of a needy people.
Study Psalm 12, which is a Psalm of David, especially take note of lines six and seven and see for yourself precisely what God inspired for the scribe to record. You will rejoice and find eternal comfort with David in the promise that God will preserve His Word forever.
The modern Bible correctors greatly overreached in adapting this Psalm to fit their world based taste and agenda. From the beginning, God provided the necessary words, and no alterations are needed. A sincere child of God can hear and receive God’s ageless message and cling with eternal hope to His promise of the preservation concerning His Word. Any attempt by mankind in altering or outsmarting the will and way of God will fail desperately, never enduring to the end, as will the unspotted Word of God.
