|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
34 "You have minds like a snake pit! How do you suppose what you say is worth anything when you are so foul-minded? It's your heart, not the dictionary, that gives meaning to your words.
34 You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.
