Proverbs 26:23-28 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
23 Like a glazed finish on earthenware
are smooth lips and a wicked heart.
24 With their lips enemies pretend,
but inwardly they maintain deceit;
25 When they speak graciously, do not trust them,
for seven abominations are in their hearts.
26 Hatred can be concealed by pretense,
but malice will be revealed in the assembly.
27 Whoever digs a pit falls into it;
and a stone comes back upon the one who rolls it.
28 The lying tongue is its owner’s enemy,
and the flattering mouth works ruin.
