Do not drag me away with the wicked, with the evildoers, who speak in friendly ways with their neighbors, while malice is in their hearts.
For they do not speak in friendly ways, but contrive deceitful schemes against those who live peacefully in the land.
"There is no peace," says the Lord, "for the wicked."
Anguish is coming! They will seek peace, but there will be none.
I am for peace; but when I speak, they are for war.
I have lived too long with those who hate peace.
