In you are slanderous men bent on shedding blood; in you are those who eat at the mountain shrines and commit lewd acts.
"Slanderous men have been in you for the purpose of shedding blood, and in you they have eaten at the mountain shrines. In your midst they have committed acts of lewdness.
People accuse others falsely and send them to their death. You are filled with idol worshipers and people who take part in lewd activities.
You have people spreading lies and spilling blood, flocking to the hills to the sex shrines and fornicating unrestrained.
In you there are men who say evil of others, causing death; in you they have taken the flesh with the blood for food; in your streets they have put evil designs into effect.
In you are those who slander to shed blood, those in you who eat upon the mountains, who commit lewdness in your midst.
"In you are men who slander to cause bloodshed; in you are those who eat on the mountains; in your midst they commit lewdness.
