ESV — Jeremiah 9:8; Psalm 5:9; Psalm 12:2; Psalm 55:21; Psalm 62:4

xTheir tongue is a deadly arrow;

yit speaks deceitfully;

with his mouth zeach speaks peace to his neighbor,

but in his heart ahe plans an ambush for him.


For there is no truth in their mouth;

their inmost self is jdestruction;

ktheir throat is lan open grave;

they mflatter with their tongue.


Everyone nutters lies to his neighbor;

with oflattering lips and pa double heart they speak.


21  His fspeech was gsmooth as butter,

yet war was in his heart;

his words were softer than oil,

yet they were hdrawn swords.


They only plan to thrust him down from his ehigh position.

They take pleasure in falsehood.

fThey bless with their mouths,

but inwardly they curse. Selah
