They visit me as if they were my friends, but all the while they gather gossip, and when they leave, they spread it everywhere. All who hate me whisper about me, imagining the worst. Even my best friend, the one I trusted completely, the one who shared my food, has turned against me. I know you are pleased with me, for you have not let my enemies triumph over me.
Psalms 41:6-7, 9, 11 NLT
The way to overcome is to be spiritually discerning.
