"Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully. ... Thou lovest evil more than good; [and] lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah." {Psa 52:2-3} + "My soul [is] among lions: [and] I lie [even among] them that are set on fire, [even] the sons of men, whose teeth [are] spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword." {Psa 57:4} + "Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords [are] in their lips: for who, [say they], doth hear?" {Psa 59:7} + "Who whet their tongue like a sword, [and] bend [their bows to shoot] their arrows, [even] bitter words: ... That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not." {Psa 64:3-4} + "There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise [is] health." {Prv 12:18} + "For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness. ... They hatch cockatrice' eggs, and weave the spider's web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper." {Isa 59:3-5} + "In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood." {Isa 59:13} + "And they bend their tongues [like] their bow [for] lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD." {Jer 9:3} + "And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, [and] weary themselves to commit iniquity." {Jer 9:5} + "And the tongue [is] a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. ... But the tongue can no man tame; [it is] an unruly evil, full of deadly poison." {Jms 3:6-8}
