2 Peter 3:16

as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.

അവയിൽ ഗ്രഹിപ്പാൻ പ്രയാസമുള്ളതു ചിലതുണ്ടു. അറിവില്ലാത്തവരും അസ്ഥിരന്മാരുമായവർ ശേഷം തിരുവെഴുത്തുകളെപ്പോലെ അതും തങ്ങളുടെ നാശത്തിന്നായി കോട്ടിക്കളയുന്നു.

Psalms 56:5

All day they twist my words; All their thoughts are against me for evil.

ഇടവിടാതെ അവർ എന്റെ വാക്കുകളെ കോട്ടിക്കളയുന്നു; അവരുടെ വിചാരങ്ങളൊക്കെയും എന്റെ നേരെ തിന്മെക്കായിട്ടാകുന്നു.
