With her many persuasions she entices him; With her flattering lips she seduces him.
All who see me sneer at me; They separate with the lip, they wag the head, saying,
Who have said, "With our tongue we will prevail; Our lips are our own; who is lord over us?"
For your hands are defiled with blood And your fingers with iniquity; Your lips have spoken falsehood, Your tongue mutters wickedness.
They sharpen their tongues as a serpent; Poison of a viper is under their lips. Selah.
For their minds devise violence, And their lips talk of trouble.
A worthless man digs up evil, While his words are like scorching fire.
Do not be a witness against your neighbor without cause, And do not deceive with your lips.
