Proverbs 6:12-13 (ESV)

12 A worthless person, a wicked man,

goes about with crooked speech,

13 winks with his eyes, signals with his feet,

points with his finger,

A troublemaker or a wicked person distorts the truth. Behind the back of the ones she seeks to ruin, her eyes let those around her know her evil intent. She shuffles her feet as another nonverbal sign, and even points out her victim to her associates. From her eyes all the way down to her feet, including her finger, the entire body of the unrighteous man or woman works to defame another. This troublemaker enjoys harming the reputation of the godly. She doesn’t care about the ruin she may bring to another with her deceptive speech as long as she can be the center of attention. Stay away from those who seem to enjoy putting down others. In their desire to feel superior to those around them, they feel no shame as they cause others to look critically upon their victims. Never try to build yourself up by bringing others down.
