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: Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. (1 Pet 3:10-11)
Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. (James 3:5-8)
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. (Pro 18:20)
A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter. (Pro 11:13) The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly. (Pro 18:8)
There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.
(Pro 12:18) In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise. (Pro 10:19)
He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit. Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding. (Pro 17:27-28)
The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning. (Pro 16:21) The tongue of the just is as choice silver: the heart of the wicked is little worth. (Pro 10:20) A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit. (Pro 15:4)
A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger. (Pro 15:1) Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. (Mt 5:9)
A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it! (Pro 15:23) A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver. (Pro 25:11)
