“Whoever guards his mouth and tongue
Keeps his soul from troubles.”
[Prov. 21:23, Bible, NKJV]
“Do not speak in the hearing of a fool,
For he will despise the wisdom of your words.”
[Prov. 23:9, Bible, NKJV]
“Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth;
Keep watch over the door of my lips.
Do not incline my heart to any evil thing.
To practice wicked works
With men who work iniquity;
And do not let me eat of their delicacies.”
[Psalms 141:3-4, NKJV]
He who has knowledge spares his words,
And a man of understanding is of a calm spirit.
Even a fool is counted wise when he holds his peace;
When he shuts his lips, he is considered perceptive.
[Prov. 17:27-28, Bible, NKJV]
