Proverbs 18:4; Proverbs 18:20-21 (New International Version)
The words of a man's mouth are deep waters, but the fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.
From the fruit of his mouth a man's stomach is filled; with the harvest from his lips he is satisfied.
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
