FLATTERING TITLES, LIPS, MOUTHS, WORKETH RUIN

“Like a bee, the flatterer has honey in his mouth and a sting in his tail.”

“Flattery and friendship never go together.”

– C. H. Spurgeon

Job 17:5  He that speaketh flattery to his friends, even the eyes of his children shall fail.

Job 32:21-22 Let me not, I pray you, accept any man’s person, neither let me give flattering titles unto man. For I know not to give flattering titles; in so doing my maker would soon take me away.

Psalms 12:2-3 They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak. The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things:

Proverbs 26:28 A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.

Proverbs 29:5 A man that flattereth his neighbour spreadeth a net for his feet.
