A perverted heart will not find good,
and the one who twists his tonguea will fall into evil. Bible
Twists what he says; lies.

“A perverted heart will not find good​.” The phrase “will not find good” primarily refers to tangible prosperity, so the NIV and NRSV say, “do not prosper.” However, that is not the only meaning of “will not find good.” It also refers to the fact that those who are of a perverse heart do not see the good in good things.
