end quote.

In your translation you were using the future more or less 
consistently and the you decide to render 'he had done (QATAL) 
no violence, and there was no deception in his mouth'.
On what basis did you decide to switch to the past here?
Could it not just as easily have been:

'though he will have done no violence'?
