HELPS Lexicon excerpt

2191 éxidna – properly, a poisonous snake; (figuratively) incisive words delivering their deadly venom, especially by blasphemy (this switches the bitter for the sweet, light for darkness, etc.).  2191/éxidna ("viper") then suggests the venomous desire to reverse what is true for what is false.
