New Living Translation
My enemies cannot speak a truthful word. Their deepest desire is to destroy others. Their talk is foul, like the stench from an open grave. Their tongues are filled with flattery.

You love evil more than good and lies more than truth. Interlude
Everything is falling apart; threats and cheating are rampant in the streets.
To flatter friends is to lay a trap for their feet.
