Jeremiah 9:3-9

And they bend
<01869> (8686)
their tongues
<03956>
[like] their bow
<07198>
[for] lies
<08267>_:
but they are not valiant
<01396> (8804)
for the truth
<0530>
upon the earth
<0776>_;
for they proceed
<03318> (8804)
from evil
<07451>
to evil
<07451>_,
and they know
<03045> (8804)
not me, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
Take ye heed
<08104> (8734)
every one
<0376>
of his neighbour
<07453>_,
and trust
<0982> (8799)
ye not in any brother
<0251>_:
for every brother
<0251>
will utterly
<06117> (8800)
supplant
<06117> (8799)_,
and every neighbour
<07453>
will walk
<01980> (8799)
with slanders
<07400>_.
{neighbour: or, friend}
And they will deceive
<02048> (8762)
every one
<0376>
his neighbour
<07453>_,
and will not speak
<01696> (8762)
the truth
<0571>_:
they have taught
<03925> (8765)
their tongue
<03956>
to speak
<01696> (8763)
lies
<08267>_,
[and] weary
<03811> (8738)
themselves to commit iniquity
<05753> (8687)_.
{deceive: or, mock}
Thine habitation
<03427> (8800)
[is] in the midst
<08432>
of deceit
<04820>_;
through deceit
<04820>
they refuse
<03985> (8765)
to know
<03045> (8800)
me, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
Therefore thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
Behold, I will melt
<06884> (8802)
them, and try
<0974> (8804)
them; for how shall I do
<06213> (8799)
for
<06440>
the daughter
<01323>
of my people
<05971>_?
Their tongue
<03956>
[is as] an arrow
<02671>
shot out
<07819> (8803)_;
it speaketh
<01696> (8765)
deceit
<04820>_:
[one] speaketh
<01696> (8762)
peaceably
<07965>
to his neighbour
<07453>
with his mouth
<06310>_,
but in heart
<07130>
he layeth
<07760> (8799)
his wait
<0696>_.
{in heart: Heb. in the midst of him} {his wait: or, wait for him}
Shall I not visit
<06485> (8799)
them for these [things]? saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_:
shall not my soul
<05315>
be avenged
<05358> (8691)
on such a nation
<01471>
as this?
