And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and
weary themselves to commit iniquity.
Thine habitation is
in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD.
Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, I will melt them, and try them; for how shall I do for the daughter of my people?
Their tongue is as
an arrow shot out; it speaketh deceit: one
speaketh peaceably to his neighbour with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his wait.
Shall I not visit them for these things
? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?
