Put away from you
Put away from you a deceitful mouth, And put perverse lips far from you.
The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable, But the mouth of the wicked what is perverse.
Put away from you a deceitful mouth And put devious speech far from you.
All the words of my mouth are with righteousness; Nothing crooked or perverse is in them.
A wicked person listens to deceitful lips; a liar pays attention to a destructive tongue.
A worthless person, a wicked man, Is the one who walks with a perverse mouth.
A worthless person, a wicked man, is he who goes about with a perverse (contrary, wayward) mouth.
Don’t let your mouth speak dishonestly, and don’t let your lips talk deviously.
Keep your mouth free of perversity; keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
A fool’s mouth is his ruin, and his lips are a snare to his soul.
