A Soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.
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.
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren; The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity.
~1 Timothy 5:1,2~
Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.
Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
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.
In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.
And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the LORD Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
