Sirach 12:16
Enemies speak sweetly with their lips, but in their hearts, they plan to throw you into a ditch. Enemies cry tears with their eyes, but if they find an opportunity, they won’t be able to get enough blood.
An enemy weepeth with his eyes: but if he find an opportunity he will not be satisfied with blood:
He will speak fine words while he plots how to trap you. He will pretend to share your sorrows, but he will kill you if he gets a chance.
With their lips enemies speak sweetly, but in their heart they scheme to plunge you into the abyss. Though enemies have tears in their eyes, given the chance, they will never have enough of your blood.
An enemy speaks sweetly with his lips, but in his heart he plans to throw you into a pit; an enemy may have tears in his eyes, but if he finds an opportunity he will never have enough of your blood.
An enemy speaks sweetly with his lips, but in his heart he plans to throw you into a pit; an enemy may have tears in his eyes, but if he finds an opportunity he will never have enough of your blood.

An enemy will speak sweetly with his lips, but in his mind he will plan to throw you into a pit; an enemy will weep with his eyes, but if he finds an opportunity his thirst for blood will be insatiable.
The enemy maketh sweet in (or with) his lips, and in his heart he setteth treason to overturn thee into the ditch. The enemy weepeth in (or with) his eyes; and (or but) if he findeth (the) time, he shall not be filled of (or with) (enough) blood [or he shall not be full-filled with blood].
