You use your mouth for evil and harness your tongue to deceit.
"You let your mouth loose in evil And your tongue frames deceit.
Your mouths are filled with wickedness, and your tongues are full of lies.
Your mouth drools filth; lying is a serious art form with you.
You have given your mouth to evil, your tongue to words of deceit.
"You give your mouth free rein for evil, and your tongue frames deceit.
You give your mouth to evil, And your tongue frames deceit.
