The messages are long gone if you manually deleted them from your phone. Viber stores databases with messages on the internal storage hardware of the phone/device. At this time, it's impossible to perform recovery procedures on the internal storage. Things were different if the Viber folder was stored on the external card, because there are apps you can use to recover them from an SD card.

To recover deleted text messages, I think a data recovery tool can be helpful.

You'd better check out the backup files, if you did not back up them, have a look at this guide.

This is probably too late but I really hope this can help you or others.
Firstly, We need to know why the deleted text messages can be recovered! When you delete a text message, the phone mark the message as “deleted”. Actually, it still exists on your phone. If the messages did not be covered, then you can still get it back.
Secondly, The solutions to Recover deleted text messages are as followings:
1.The free solution is “recovering from your backups”. For Android users, Maybe you can try to recover from google driver. For iPhone users, you can recover through iTunes or iCloud backup. Of course, it bases on you has backups.
2.If you have no backups, you can try our ways. For the android user, you can try FoneDog - Android Data Recovery. Here are the steps:

Which kind of messages do you tend to recover? The messages on SMS app, or social media app?
I think you can try to search the keyword on Google and it will give you direction to use some software to recover the deleted messages, but as for the messages on social media app, like Viber, Messenger, and more, it may be a little difficult to retrieve. You can try FonePaw iPhone Data Recovery or Android Data Recovery, which I have tried to recover the lost messages attachments.
