Good News Translation
8 Lord, I have so many enemies!
Lead me to do your will;
make your way plain for me to follow.
9 (A)What my enemies say can never be trusted;
they only want to destroy.
Their words are flattering and smooth,
but full of deadly deceit.
10 Condemn and punish them, O God;
may their own plots cause their ruin.
Drive them out of your presence
because of their many sins
and their rebellion against you.
New International Version

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.
