Micah 7:2
Good News Translation
There is not an honest person left in the land, no one loyal to God. Everyone is waiting for a chance to commit murder. Everyone hunts down their own people.

Contemporary English Version
No one is loyal to God; no one does right. Everyone is brutal and eager to deceive everyone else.
