    for the slain of my poor people!

Jeremiah 9:4-7New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

Beware of your neighbors,
    and put no trust in any of your kin;[a]
for all your kin[b] are supplanters,
    and every neighbor goes around like a slanderer.
They all deceive their neighbors,
    and no one speaks the truth;
they have taught their tongues to speak lies;
    they commit iniquity and are too weary to repent.[c]
Oppression upon oppression, deceit[d] upon deceit!
    They refuse to know me, says the Lord.

Therefore thus says the Lord of hosts:
I will now refine and test them,
    for what else can I do with my sinful people?[e]
