Jeremiah 9:3

pThey bend their tongue like a bow;

falsehood and not truth has grown strong1 in the land;

for they proceed from evil to evil,

qand they do not know me, declares the Lord.

Jeremiah 9:8

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.

Job 5:21

21  You shall be shidden from the lash of the tongue,

and shall not fear destruction when it comes.

Psalm 31:20

20  In zthe cover of your presence you hide them

from the plots of men;

you astore them in your shelter

from the strife of tongues.
