Bible: Jer 9:3-6
The Lord Laments That He Has No Choice But to Judge Them
“These people are like soldiers who have readied their bows.
Their tongues are always ready to shoot out lies. 2
They have become powerful in the land,
but they have not done so by honest means. 3
Indeed, they do one evil thing after another 4
and do not pay attention to me. 5
9:4 Everyone must be on his guard around his friends.
He must not even trust any of his relatives. 6
For every one of them will find some way to cheat him. 7
And all of his friends will tell lies about him.
9:5 One friend deceives another
and no one tells the truth.
These people have trained themselves 8 to tell lies.
They do wrong and are unable to repent.
9:6 They do one act of violence after another,
and one deceitful thing after another. 9
They refuse to pay attention to me,” 10
