Today's New International Version (TNIV) New International Version (NIV)
23 Like a coating of silver dross on earthenware are fervent lips with an evil heart. 23 Like a coating of glaze over earthenware are fervent lips with an evil heart.
24 Enemies disguise themselves with their lips, but in their hearts they harbor deceit. 24 A malicious man disguises himself with his lips, but in his heart he harbors deceit.
25 Though their speech is charming, do not believe them, for seven abominations fill their hearts. 25 Though his speech is charming, do not believe him, for seven abominations fill his heart.
26 Their malice may be concealed by deception, but their wickedness will be exposed in the assembly. 26 His malice may be concealed by deception, but his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly.
