Prohibitions 4-5

#4 לפני עור לא תתןמכשול: The prohibition of placing a stumbling block in front of the blind applies to both the speaker and listener for the speaker would not have said anything if no one was there and the listener would not have accepted the loshon hara if the speaker would not have made it sound juicy. 

#5 השמר לך פן תשכך את ד׳ אלוקיך: Is a prohibition on the speaker against acting in a haughty manner for he would not have said something bad about someone if he didn’t think he was greater than him especially if he now looks better in the eyes of the listeners.
