They have sharpened their tongue like a serpent; Adders poison is under their lips. Selah
If the serpent bite before it is charmed, then is there no advantage in the charmer.
Their throat is an open sepulchre; With their tongues they have used deceit: The poison of asps is under their lips:
But the tongue can no man tame; it is a restless evil, it is full of deadly poison.
For, behold, I will send serpents, adders, among you, which will not be charmed; and they shall bite you, saith Jehovah.
