Jacob answered his mother Rebekah, “Behold, Esau my brother is a hairy man and I am a smooth man.
And she put the skins of the young goats on his hands and on the smooth part of his neck.
His speech was smoother than butter,But his heart was war;His words were softer than oil,Yet they were drawn swords.
‘Every ravine will be filled,And every mountain and hill will be brought low;The crooked will become straight,And the rough roads smooth;
The way of the righteous is smooth;O Upright One, make the path of the righteous level.
For the lips of an adulteress drip honeyAnd smoother than oil is her speech;
Never miss a post
