English Standard Version Anglicised
3 (A)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,
(B)and they do not know me, declares the Lord.
4 (C)Let everyone beware of his neighbour,
and put no trust in any brother,
for every (D)brother is a deceiver,
and every neighbour (E)goes about as a slanderer.
5 Everyone deceives his neighbour,
and no one speaks the truth;
they have taught their tongue to speak lies;
they weary themselves committing iniquity.
- Jeremiah 9:3 Septuagint; Hebrew and not for truth they have grown strong
New International Version
3 “They make ready their tongue
like a bow, to shoot lies;(A)
it is not by truth
that they triumph[a] in the land.
They go from one sin to another;
they do not acknowledge(B) me,”
declares the Lord.
4 “Beware of your friends;(C)
do not trust anyone in your clan.(D)
For every one of them is a deceiver,[b](E)
and every friend a slanderer.(F)
5 Friend deceives friend,(G)
and no one speaks the truth.(H)
They have taught their tongues to lie;(I)
they weary themselves with sinning.
