They bend their tongue like a bow;
    falsehood and not truth has grown strong[a] in the land;
for they proceed from evil to evil,
    and they do not know me, says the Lord.

Let every one beware of his neighbor,
    and put no trust in any brother;
for every brother is a supplanter,
    and every neighbor goes about as a slanderer.
Every one deceives his neighbor,
    and no one speaks the truth;
they have taught their tongue to speak lies;
    they commit iniquity and are too weary to repent.[b]
