The judge seeks a bribe, and the great man utters his evil desire; so they scheme together.
The best of them is like a brier; the most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge;
the day of your watchman and your punishment comes; now shall be their perplexity.
Do not trust in a friend; do not put your confidence in a companion; guard the doors of your mouth
from her who lies in your bosom.
For son dishonors father, daughter rises against her mother, daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;
a manís enemies are the men of his own household.
Therefore I will look to the Lord;
I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me.
