Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.
In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips [is] wise.
There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise [is] health.
A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
A wholesome tongue [is] a tree of life: but perverseness therein [is] a breach in the spirit.
Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: [and] he that shutteth his lips [is esteemed] a man of understanding.
Death and life [are] in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by [his] fruit. (Read More…)
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, [but] gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.
If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion [is] vain.
For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same [is] a perfect man, [and] able also to bridle the whole body. (Read More…)
For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
16 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue [is] but for a moment.
Lying lips [are] abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly [are] his delight.
A false witness shall not be unpunished, and [he that] speaketh lies shall not escape.
A false witness shall not be unpunished, and [he that] speaketh lies shall perish.
Be not a witness against thy neighbour without cause; and deceive [not] with thy lips.
18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.
For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither [any thing] hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.
Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.
9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
