The tongue can do either, damage or good
A righteous man speaks life-giving words
The wicked speak violent words
The mouth of the righteous is a well of life
The wicked speak words of hate
The tongue of the just is as choice silver
The heart of the wicked is little worth
Blessings are upon the head of the just
Violence covers the mouth of the wicked.
The wise will receive commandments
A prating fool shall fall
A man of understanding speaks wisdom
There's a rod for the back of the foolish
The memory of the just is blessed
The name of the wicked shall rot
The labor of the righteous tends to life:
The fruit of the wicked to sin
In the multitude of words can be sin
The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable:
The mouth of the wicked speaks forwardness.
He that refrains his lips is wise.
The lips of the righteous feed many
Fools die for want of wisdom.
The righteous shall never be removed:
The wicked shall not inhabit the earth.
The mouth of the just brings forth wisdom:
The forward tongue shall be cut out
BEWARE, WATCH YOUR TONGUE
