New King James Version
2 Oh, that I had in the wilderness
A lodging place for travelers;
That I might leave my people,
And go from them!
For (A)they are all adulterers,
An assembly of treacherous men.
3 “And like their bow (B)they have bent their tongues for lies.
They are not valiant for the truth on the earth.
For they proceed from (C)evil to evil,
And they (D)do not know Me,” says the Lord.
4 “Everyone(E) take heed to his [a]neighbor,
And do not trust any brother;
For every brother will utterly supplant,
And every neighbor will (F)walk with slanderers.
5 Everyone will (G)deceive his neighbor,
And will not speak the truth;
They have taught their tongue to speak lies;
They weary themselves to commit iniquity.
- Jeremiah 9:4 friend
