Parallel Strong's
Holman Christian Standard Bible
His buttery words are smooth, but war is in his heart. His words are softer than oil, but they are drawn swords.

New American Standard Bible
His speech was smoother than butter, But his heart was war; His words were softer than oil, Yet they were drawn swords.

King James Bible
[The words] of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war [was] in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet [were] they drawn swords.
Parallel Verses
International Standard Version
His mouth is as smooth as butter, while war is in his heart. His words were as smooth as olive oil, while his sword is drawn.

American Standard Version
His mouth was smooth as butter, But his heart was war: His words were softer than oil, Yet were they drawn swords.

Young's Literal Translation
Sweeter than honey hath been his mouth, And his heart is war! Softer have been his words than oil, And they are drawn swords.
