An evil speaker
Jehovah will cut off all flattering lips, The tongue that speaketh great things;
Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood;
In the transgression of the lips is a snare to the evil man; But the righteous shall come out of trouble.
He that hath a wayward heart findeth no good; And he that hath a perverse tongue falleth into mischief.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue; And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Behold, he travaileth with iniquity; Yea, he hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.
Jehovah hath made himself known, he hath executed judgment: The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah
Evil shall slay the wicked; And they that hate the righteous shall be condemned.
Evil pursueth sinners; But the righteous shall be recompensed with good.
Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him ; for what his hands have done shall be done unto him.
