LibraryOne Lion Two Lions no Lion at All
A sermon (No. 1670) delivered on Thursday Evening, June 8th, 1882, at the Metropolitan Tabernacle, Newington, by C. H. Spurgeon. "The slothful man saith, There is a lion without, I shall be slain in the streets."--Proverbs 22:13. "The slothful man saith, There is a lion in the way; a lion is in the streets."--Proverbs 26:13.

C.H. Spurgeon—Sermons on Proverbs
Do not drag me away with the wicked, with those who do evil, who speak cordially with their neighbors but harbor malice in their hearts.
for he is the kind of person who is always thinking about the cost. "Eat and drink," he says to you, but his heart is not with you.
Like a coating of silver dross on earthenware are fervent lips with an evil heart.
"Beware of your friends; do not trust anyone in your clan. For every one of them is a deceiver, and every friend a slanderer.
Their tongue is a deadly arrow; it speaks deceitfully. With their mouths they all speak cordially to their neighbors, but in their hearts they set traps for them.
Your relatives, members of your own family-- even they have betrayed you; they have raised a loud cry against you. Do not trust them, though they speak well of you.
