19 Truthful lips endure forever,
but ea lying tongue is but for a moment.
20 Deceit is in the heart of fthose who devise evil,
but those who plan peace have joy.
jbut those who act faithfully are his delight.
5 The righteous hates falsehood,
but the wicked brings shame1 and disgrace.
26 Whoever gives an honest answer
kisses the lips.
18 Like a madman who throws ofirebrands, arrows, and death
19 is the man who deceives his neighbor
and says, “I am only joking!”
