New International Version
Do not trust a neighbor; put no confidence in a friend. Even with the woman who lies in your embrace guard the words of your lips.
King James Bible
Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom.
Darby Bible Translation
Believe ye not in a companion, put not confidence in a familiar friend: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom.
World English Bible

Young's Literal Translation
Believe not in a friend, trust not in a leader, From her who is lying in thy bosom keep the openings of thy mouth.
Micah 7:5 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Trust ye not in a friend - These times will be so evil, and the people so wicked, that all bonds will be dissolved; and even the most intimate will betray each other, when they can hope to serve themselves by it.

It is now twenty-seven years since, and I find no cause to alter what I then wrote.

Set a guard over my mouth, LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.
"Beware of your friends; do not trust anyone in your clan. For every one of them is a deceiver, and every friend a slanderer.
Bitterly she weeps at night, tears are on her cheeks. Among all her lovers there is no one to comfort her. All her friends have betrayed her; they have become her enemies.
