No one calls for justice;(A)
    no one pleads a case with integrity.
They rely(B) on empty arguments, they utter lies;(C)
    they conceive trouble and give birth to evil.(D)
They hatch the eggs of vipers(E)
    and spin a spider’s web.(F)
Whoever eats their eggs will die,
    and when one is broken, an adder is hatched.
Their cobwebs are useless for clothing;
    they cannot cover themselves with what they make.(G)
Their deeds are evil deeds,
    and acts of violence(H) are in their hands.
Their feet rush into sin;
    they are swift to shed innocent blood.(I)
They pursue evil schemes;(J)
    acts of violence mark their ways.(K)
The way of peace they do not know;(L)
    there is no justice in their paths.
They have turned them into crooked roads;(M)
    no one who walks along them will know peace.(N)

    I have seen something horrible:(A)

They strengthen the hands of evildoers,(C)
    so that not one of them turns from their wickedness.(D)
They are all like Sodom(E) to me;
    the people of Jerusalem are like Gomorrah.”(F)
