DECEIT

de-set' (mirmah; (dolos): The intentional misleading or beguiling of another; in Scripture represented as a companion of many other forms of wickedness, as cursing (Ps 10:7), hatred (Prov 26:24), theft, covetousness, adultery, murder (Mk 7:22; Rom 1:29). The Revised Version (British and American) introduces the word in Prov 14:25; 2 Thess 2:10; but in such passages as Ps 55:11; Prov 20:17; 26:26; 1 Thess 2:3, renders a variety of words, more accurately than the King James Version, by "oppression," "falsehood," "guile," "error."
