Oh athat my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears,

That I might weep day and night for the slain of bthe daughter of my people!

Oh that I had in the wilderness a lodging place of bbwayfaring men;

That I might leave my people, and go from them!

For cthey be all adulterers, dan assembly of etreacherous men.

And fthey bend their tongues like their bow for lies:

But gthey are not valiant for hthe truth upon the earth;

For they proceed from evil to evil,

And hithey know not me, saith the Lord.

kTake ye heed every one of his ||neighbour,

And ktrust ye not in any brother:

For every brother lwill utterly supplant,

And every neighbour mwill walk with slanders.

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 nto commit iniquity.

Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit;

oThrough deceit they refuse to know me, saith the Lord.

Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts,

Behold, I will pmelt them, and qtry them;

For rhow shall I do for bthe daughter of my people?

fsTheir tongue is as an arrow shot out; tit speaketh deceit:

One uspeaketh peaceably to his neighbour with his mouth,

But in heart vhe layeth ||his wait.

wShall I not visit them for these things? saith the Lord:

Shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?
