Like the glaze covering an earthen vessel are smooth lips with an evil heart.
He who hates, dissembles with his lips and harbors deceit in his heart;
when he speaks graciously, believe him not, for there are seven abominations in his heart;
though his hatred be covered with guile, his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly.
