With the mouth, a profane man destroyeth his neighbour, but, through knowledge, shall righteous men be delivered.
A perverse man, sendeth forth strife, and, a tattler, separateth intimate friends.
Let, no putrid discourse, out of your mouth, be going forth, but if anything is goodsuited to the needful upbuilding,that it may give benefit unto them that hear;
He that concealeth hatred, hath false lips, and he that sendeth forth slander, the same, is a dullard.
Happy, are ye, whensoever they may reproach you and persecute you, and say every evil thing against you, falsely, for my sake:
He that walketh without blame, and doeth what is right, and speaketh truth with his heart;
Hath not carried slander on his tongue, hath not done his friend a wrong, nor, a reproach, taken up against his neighbour;
He that goeth about talebearing, revealeth a secret, but, he that is faithful in spirit, concealeth a matter.
