Eternal One: With tongues bent like bows they shoot their lies at one another.
        Truth does not win out in this land; deceit always seems to triumph.
    One evil leads to another because they don’t know who I am.
    Let everyone be careful of his neighbor,
        and think twice before he trusts his brothers;
    For every brother is ready to cheat and deceive;
        every neighbor is prepared to lie when it suits him.

    They’ve trained their tongues to utter lies;
        they wear themselves out with all their sinning.
