21 As charcoal to hot embers and wood to fire,
so is a quarrelsome man for kindling strife.
28 A lying tongue hates its victims,
and a flattering mouth works ruin.
Proverbs 26:21, 28, English Standard Version (ESV)
2 Let another praise you, and not your own mouth;
a stranger, and not your own lips.
