Do not drag me away with the wicked And with those who work iniquity, Who speak peace with their neighbors, While evil is in their hearts.
For they do not speak peace, But they devise deceitful words against those who are quiet in the land.
"There is no peace for the wicked," says the LORD.
'When anguish comes, they will seek peace, but there will be none.
I am for peace, but when I speak, They are for war.
Too long has my soul had its dwelling With those who hate peace.
