SPIRITUAL INSIGHT SERIES

PART 5 OF 12

A set of suggestive verses from the Bible focused on our choices of words in talking with one another, with respect to a more constructive and valuable communication system.

By Loring Tatem

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. (Proverbs 18:21)

Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. (James 4:11)

Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. (I Corinthians 15:33)

I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me. (Psalms 39:1)

Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few. (Ecclesiastes 5:2)

Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man. (Colossians 4:6)

Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man. (St. Matthew 15:11)

And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. (James 3:6)

For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. (St. Matthew 12:37)

But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; (I Peter 1:15)

He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit. (Proverbs 17:27)

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. (Ephesians 4:29)

And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, (II Timothy 2:24)

In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; (II Timothy 2:25)

Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: (Ephesians 4:31)

But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil. (St. Matthew 5:37)
