Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
2 Samuel 20:9
And Joab said to Amasa, Is it well, my brother? And with his right hand he took him by the hair of his chin to give him a kiss.

And they come to you as my people come, and are seated before you as my people, hearing your words but doing them not: for deceit is in their mouth and their heart goes after profit for themselves.
And straight away he came to Jesus and said, Master! and gave him a kiss.
(He said this, not because he had any love for the poor; but because he was a thief, and, having the money-bag, took for himself what was put into it.)
