“They (A)bend their tongue like their bow;
Lies and not truth prevail in the land;
For they (B)proceed from evil to evil,
And they (C)do not know Me,” declares the Lord.
“Let everyone (D)be on guard against his neighbor,
And (E)do not trust any brother;
Because every (F)brother deals [a]craftily,
And every neighbor (G)goes about as a slanderer.
“Everyone (H)deceives his neighbor
And does not speak the truth,
They have taught their tongue to speak lies;
They (I)weary themselves committing iniquity.
