A faithful man who can find?

Most men will proclaim each his own goodness, But who can find a faithful man?

Psalms 12:1 NKJV
Help, Lord , for the godly man ceases! For the faithful disappear from among the sons of men.

Gill commentary
Or, though every man is talking of his good works, and boasting of his goodness, it is difficult to find an Israelite indeed, in whom the true grace of God is.
