Narcissist Traits and Tactics – They Are Deceivers (and Liars)

Isaiah 28:14-15

14 Therefore, hear the word of the Lord, O scoffers,
Who rule this people who are in Jerusalem,
15 Because you have said, “We have made a covenant with death,
And with Sheol we have made a pact.
The overwhelming scourge will not reach us when it passes by,
For we have made falsehood our refuge and we have concealed ourselves with deception.”

.

Proverbs 21:24

Proud,” “Haughty,” “Scoffer,” are his names, Who acts with insolent pride.
.
Isaiah 28:14-15 is referring to the Pharisees during Jesus’ time (we will demonstrate that more fully in the near future).  But, by calling these people “scoffers”, the passage in Isaiah clearly indicates that they had “insolent pride”, which is the scriptural term for narcissism.    And verse 15 also indicates that falsehood and deception were central to their mode of operating.
