3 pThey bend their tongue like a bow;
falsehood and not truth has grown strong1 in the land;
qand they do not know me, declares the Lord.
 9:3 Septuagint; Hebrew and not for truth they have grown strong
8 xTheir tongue is a deadly arrow;
yit speaks deceitfully;
with his mouth zeach speaks peace to his neighbor,
but in his heart ahe plans an ambush for him.
21 You shall be shidden from the lash of the tongue,
20 In zthe cover of your presence you hide them
you astore them in your shelter
