Dear Ted,

You write:

>There seems to be a variety of pronouns used in
>Ps.12: 7 in various English translations-- "us.. us" (NIV, NRSV); "them..
>him" (NASB); "them.. them" (KJV).  What's the story on this?  Is the same
>Hebrew term used in each instance, or are they different?

A fairly word for word translation:

"You, Yahweh, will keep them safe. You will protect us from such a
generation forever."
