Plans are frustrated without consultation; but through a multitude of counsellors canst thou maintain thyself.
In a multitude of words transgression cannot be avoided; but he that refraineth his lips is intelligent.
He that walketh about as talebearer revealeth secrets; but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.
O give thanks unto the Lord; call on his name: make known among the people his deeds.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they that love it will eat its fruit.
A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth; and a word spoken at the proper time, how good is it!
He that watcheth his mouth guardeth his soul; but he that openeth wide his lips prepareth himself destruction.
Open thy mouth for the dumb, for the cause of all fatherless children.
A soft answer turneth away fury; but a mortifying word stirreth up anger.
Even a fool, when he keepeth silence, is counted wise: he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.
The words of a wise mans mouth bring grace; but the lips of a fool will destroy himself.
A healing word of the tongue is a tree of life; but perverseness therein is a breach to the spirit.
My mouth shall be filled with thy praise, and with thy glory all the day.
