With his mouth doth the hypocrite destroy his neighbor; but through knowledge are the righteous delivered.
A perverse man scattereth strife; and a whisperer separateth confident friends.
He that hideth hatred hath lips of falsehood; and he that spreadeth abroad an evil report, is a fool.
He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart;
That uttereth no calumny with his tongue, that doth no evil to his neighbor, and bringeth no reproach on his fellowman;
He that walketh about as talebearer revealeth secrets; but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.
