lēz´ing ( כּזב , kāzabh "to devise," "to fabricate," hence, "to lie"; occurs but twice in the King James Version ( Psalm 4:2 , the Revised Version (British and American) "falsehood"; Psalm 5:6 , the Revised Version (British and American) "lies"); the Hebrew word is translated "liars" (Psalm 116:11 ); "lie" or deceive (Job 6:28 )): The idea of treachery, lying, and deceit, lies at the root of this word. Joab's conduct is a good illustration of the meaning (2 Samuel 3:27; 2 Samuel 20:8-10 ). In Psalm 5:6 David is referring to the cunning, treachery, and falsehood of his adversaries; compare 2 Samuel 13:28; 2 Samuel 15:7-9 . Doubtless David had a special person in mind as being guilty of "leasing," probably Ahithophel.
