Holman Bible Dictionary
Fleshy, muscular folds surrounding the mouth. In the Old Testament, lips frequently take the character of the whole person. There are flattering and lying lips (Psalm 12:2
; Psalm 31:18
); joyful lips (Psalm 63:5
); righteous lips (Proverbs 16:13
); fearful lips (Habakkuk 3:16
). Uncircumcised lips (Exodus 6:12
) most likely refer to stammering lips or lack of fluency in speech (Exodus 4:10
). Mourning is expressed in part by covering the upper lip with one's hand (Leviticus 13:45
