He who hates disguises it with his lips,
But he lays up deceit in his heart.
Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil,
But counselors of peace have joy.
And when he comes to see me, he speaks falsehood;
His heart gathers wickedness to itself;
When he goes outside, he tells it.
He who conceals hatred has lying lips,
And he who spreads slander is a fool.
A false balance is an abomination to the Lord,
But a just weight is His delight.
The thoughts of the righteous are just,
But the counsels of the wicked are deceitful.
He who speaks truth tells what is right,
But a false witness, deceit.
The wisdom of the sensible is to understand his way,
But the foolishness of fools is deceit.
