Jeremiah 9:2-6 English Standard Version Anglicised (ESVUK)

[a] Oh that I had in the desert
    a travellers' lodging place,
that I might leave my people
    and go away from them!
For they are all adulterers,
    a company of treacherous men.
They bend their tongue like a bow;
    falsehood and not truth has grown strong[b] in the land;
for they proceed from evil to evil,
    and they do not know me, declares the Lord.
Let everyone beware of his neighbour,
    and put no trust in any brother,
for every brother is a deceiver,
    and every neighbour goes about as a slanderer.
Everyone deceives his neighbour,
    and no one speaks the truth;
they have taught their tongue to speak lies;
    they weary themselves committing iniquity.
Heaping oppression upon oppression, and deceit upon deceit,
    they refuse to know me, declares the Lord.
