« Proverbs 16:28 »

NIV KJV ESV NKJV
X
KJV
A perverse person stirs up conflict, and a gossip separates close friends.A froward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends.
The one whose walk is blameless, who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from their heart; whose tongue utters no slander, who does no wrong to a neighbor, and casts no slur on others.He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.
A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy person keeps a secret.A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.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.
With their mouths the godless destroy their neighbors, but through knowledge the righteous escape.An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.
Whoever conceals hatred with lying lips and spreads slander is a fool.He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool.
Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies.Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
The soothing tongue is a tree of life, but a perverse tongue crushes the spirit.A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.
