For what Eisenman is translating as "Lying Spouter", it can be found in 
Eisenman's "James the Just in the Habakkuk Pesher" in which he includes a 
Glossary of Hebrew terms. One entry reads:
Mattif/Mattif ha-Cazav, the Sprouter/Pourer Out of Lying; a variation of the 
Ish ha-Cazav (the Man of Lying) and the Ish ha-Lazon (the Man of 
Jesting/Scoffing/Comedian) imagery at Qumran, incorporating plays on what 
appears to have been his characteristic activities, pouring out words or 
waters (even perhaps speaking with his "Tongue" or "in tongues") and Lying.
