Common English Bible
8 Lord, because of many enemies,
please lead me in your righteousness.
Make your way clear,
right in front of me.
9 Because there’s no truth in my enemies’ mouths,
all they have inside them is destruction.
Their throats are open graves;
their tongues slick with talk.
10 Condemn them, God!
Let them fail by their own plans.
Throw them out for their many sins
because they’ve rebelled against you.
New International Version

9 Not a word from their mouth can be trusted;
their heart is filled with malice.
Their throat is an open grave;(C)
with their tongues they tell lies.(D)
10 Declare them guilty, O God!
Let their intrigues be their downfall.
Banish them for their many sins,(E)
for they have rebelled(F) against you.
