They have sharpened their tongue like a serpent. Adders' poison is under their lips. Selah.
If the serpent bites before it is charmed, then is there no advantage in the charmer.
Their throat is an open grave. With their tongues they deceive. The poison of asps is under their lips,
But no man is able to tame the tongue of men, an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
For, behold, I will send serpents, adders, among you, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, says LORD.
