Proverbs 8:8

All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them.
– Proverbs 8:8

The word for froward means twisted and the word for perverse means crooked. They both describe speech that is deceitful and crafty. The word for righteousness means just and right. The words of wisdom are open, truthful, and reliable. There is no deceit or trickery to them.
