Psalm 55:21; Psalm 59:7; Psalm 64:3; Proverbs 12:18; Psalm 52:2; Jeremiah 9:8

21  His fspeech was gsmooth as butter,

yet war was in his heart;

his words were softer than oil,

yet they were hdrawn swords.

There they are, lbellowing with their mouths

with mswords in their lips

for nWho, they think,1 will hear us?

who owhet their tongues like swords,

who paim bitter words like arrows,

18  cThere is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts,

but the tongue of the wise brings dhealing.

Your dtongue plots destruction,

like ea sharp razor, you fworker of deceit.

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.
