New International Version
5 No longer will the fool(A) be called noble
nor the scoundrel be highly respected.
6 For fools speak folly,(B)
their hearts are bent on evil:(C)
They practice ungodliness(D)
and spread error(E) concerning the Lord;
the hungry they leave empty(F)
and from the thirsty they withhold water.
7 Scoundrels use wicked methods,(G)
they make up evil schemes(H)
to destroy the poor with lies,
even when the plea of the needy(I) is just.(J)
