From the fruit of his mouth a man eats what is good, but the desire of the treacherous is for violence.
I've been interested in studying the Proverbs that have to do with words and speaking. It seems that the bible puts a huge stress on what we say, not to mention The Word and everything that is.
This proverb was difficult to conceptualize. I thought of alot of different ideas trying to position two characters, and then three characters. I wanted to show a person somehow feeding them self with words but another person whose stomach was convulsing somehow. It was very difficult. So what I ended up doing was illustrating just the first half of this proverb demonstrating the mysterious transformation of words into a consumable substance for our soul and that is hopefully what is conveyed in this image.
