Proverbs 26:25-27 The Voice (VOICE)

25 Don’t believe him when he speaks kindly
    because his heart is completely ruled by evil.[a]

26 And though he covers his hatred with cleverness,
    his wicked ways will be publicly exposed.
27 The one who digs a trap for another will fall into it,
    and the one who starts rolling a stone will have it roll back over him.


  1. 26:25 Literally, “seven detestable evils”

Proverbs 26:25-27 New International Version (NIV)

25 Though their speech is charming, do not believe them,
    for seven abominations fill their hearts.
26 Their malice may be concealed by deception,
    but their wickedness will be exposed in the assembly.
27 Whoever digs a pit will fall into it;
    if someone rolls a stone, it will roll back on them.
