_ _ Here is, 1. Hypocrisy designing ill. It is not only the murderer with his sword, but the hypocrite with his mouth, that destroys his neighbour, decoying him into sin, or into mischief, by the specious pretences of kindness and good-will. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, but no tongue more fatal than the flattering tongue. 2. Honesty defeating the design and escaping the snare: Through knowledge of the devices of Satan shall the just be delivered from the snares which the hypocrite has laid for him; seducers shall not deceive the elect. By the knowledge of God, and the scriptures, and their own hearts, shall the just be delivered from those that lie in wait to deceive, and so to destroy, Romans 16:18, Romans 16:19.
Delivered From the infection of the hypocrite's evil counsel.
An (d) hypocrite with [his] mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.
(d) A deceiver who pretends friendship, but privately is an enemy.
- An hypocrite:
- Or rather, as chanaiph properly signifies, a wicked, profligate person, an infidel.

2 Peter 3:16-18 As also in all [his] epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as [they do] also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. ...
