(13) Their throat is an open sepulchre--i.e., their speech is at once corrupt and corrupting. It is compared to a "yawning grave"--not merely to a pit into which a man may fall, but to a sort of pestiferous chasm yawning and ravening, as it were, after its prey.

They have used deceit.--Strictly, they were deceiving; a continued action brought up to the present time.

Under their lips.--As the poison-bag of the serpent is directly under the kind of tooth by which its venom is discharged.

3:9-18 Here again is shown that all mankind are under the guilt of sin, as a burden; and under the government and dominion of sin, as enslaved to it, to work wickedness. This is made plain by several passages of Scripture from the Old Testament, which describe the corrupt and depraved state of all men, till grace restrain or change them. Great as our advantages are, these texts describe multitudes who call themselves Christians. Their principles and conduct prove that there is no fear of God before their eyes. And where no fear of God is, no good is to be looked for.
