Verse 19
A moment - Liars, though they may make a fair shew for a season, yet are quickly convicted.

Verse 20
Deceit - They whose hearts devise mischief shall be deceived in their hopes, and bring trouble upon themselves: but they who by good counsels labour to promote peace, shall reap the comfort of it themselves.

Verse 23
Concealeth - He does not unseasonably utter what he knows. Foolishness - Betrays his ignorance and folly.

A good word - A compassionate or encouraging word.

Verse 26
Neighbour - Than any other men. Seduceth - Heb. maketh them to err, to lose that excellency or happiness which they had promised themselves.
