Proverbs 10:19; Proverbs 11:13; Proverbs 16:28; Proverbs 18:8; Proverbs 18:21; Proverbs 20:19; Ephesians 4:29; James 1:26
When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent.
Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets, but he who is trustworthy in spirit keeps a thing covered.
A dishonest man spreads strife, and a whisperer separates close friends.
The words of a whisperer are like delicious morsels; they go down into the inner parts of the body.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.
Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets; therefore do not associate with a simple babbler.
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless.
