An evildoer gives heed to lips of wickedness;
A liar gives ear to a destructive tongue.

And he who is perverted in his tongue falls into evil.

Better is a poor man who walks in his integrity
Than he who is crooked in lips and is a fool.

Proverbs 26:18 - 26:19

Like a madman who shoots
Firebrands, arrows, and death,
So is the man who deceives his neighbor,
And says, “Am I not joking?”

A lying tongue hates those it crushes,
And a flattering mouth works ruin.
