They bend their tongues like bows;
    they have grown strong in the land for falsehood, and not for truth;
for they proceed from evil to evil,
    and they do not know me, says the Lord.

Beware of your neighbours,
    and put no trust in any of your kin;[a]
for all your kin[b] are supplanters,
    and every neighbour goes around like a slanderer.
They all deceive their neighbours,
    and no one speaks the truth;
they have taught their tongues to speak lies;
    they commit iniquity and are too weary to repent.[c]
