Patrick, the Apostle of the Irish.
Letter xix (A. D. 1127) to Suger, Abbot of S. Denis
They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.
Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts.

My soul is among lions: and I lie even among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.
Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords are in their lips: for who, say they, doth hear?

I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.
