18 He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool.
18 Whoever conceals hatred with lying lips and spreads slander is a fool.
18 The one who conceals hatred has lying lips, and whoever utters slander is a fool.
18 Liars secretly hoard hatred; fools openly spread slander.
18 Whoever hides hatred has lying lips, And whoever spreads slander is a fool.
18 Hiding hatred makes you a liar; slandering others makes you a fool.
