destruction is inside it;

oppression and deceit never leave its marketplace.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 55:12 -

But it is you, a man who is my peer,

my companion and good friend!

against those at peace with him;

he violates his covenant.

His words are softer than oil,

but they are drawn swords.

Cast your burden on the LORD,

and he will sustain you;

he will never allow the righteous to be shaken.

God, you will bring them down

to the Pit of destruction;

men of bloodshed and treachery

will not live out half their days.

But I will trust in you.
