Considering Proverbs 11:9

An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered. When we think of the word, “hypocrite” in English, we think of a person who says one thing but does another. Here, this word is translated from “chaneph,” which means a profane or godless person.
