13"Their throat is an open tomb; with their tongues they have practiced deceit"; "The poison of asps is under their lips".

The corruption of men appears in their tongues. We are all killers and butchers, because we cause the destruction and ruin of the reputation, happiness, and peace of others with our sharp tongues; we poison the atmosphere with lies, charges, insults, and shameless jokes; and we complain against God’s directions. Our opposition is like bitter blasphemy in our mouths. We are disobedient to God’s discipline, and do not know that we deserve nothing but heavy blows and indispensable judgment.
