The Lips in Bible and Quran

By: Prof.dr. Ibrahim Khalil

Before dealing with the topic of the Lips in Quran versus Bible versus sciences, it is mandatory to remember that the total words in the Bible are 788,280 while the total words in the Quran are 77,473. It follows that, the Bible is more than 10 times the Quran word-wise.
The Lips are mentioned 121 times in the Bible (KJV) and once in the Quran, i.e. the Bible mentions the Lips 121 times more than the Quran
In other words, the Bible has the potential of more than 10 times (word-wise) and 121 times (subject-wise) than the Quran to talk about the Lips.

The Lips in the Bible:

The Bible says:" For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil"; Moses said: "I am of uncircumcised lips"; Isaiah said: "I am a man of unclean lips"; The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips and will put my hook in thy nose, and my bridle in thy lips
In addition, the Bible cites that the leper (a patient with skin disease) shall put a covering upon his upper lip, and shall cry, "Unclean, unclean". The Bible also says that: There are Swords, indignation, fruit and calves in their lips,

7] Does he (man) think that no one sees him?!
8] Have we not given him two eyes?
9] And a tongue, and a pair of lips?-
10] And guided him on the two paths (of good and evil)?
11] Yet he has not scaled the height.
12] What could let you know what the height is!
13] (It is) the freeing of a slave,
14] or the giving of food in a day of hunger
15] To an orphaned relative
16] Or to a needy person in distress;
17] So that he becomes one of those who believe, charge each other to be patient, and charge each other to be merciful.
18] Those are the companions of the right.
19] But those who disbelieve in our verses, they are the companions of the left,
