« Proverbs 16:28 »

NIV KJV ESV NKJV

NIV
A perverse man sows strife, And a whisperer separates the best of friends.A perverse person stirs up conflict, and a gossip separates close friends.
He who walks uprightly, And works righteousness, And speaks the truth in his heart; He who does not backbite with his tongue, Nor does evil to his neighbor, Nor does he take up a reproach against his friend.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.
A talebearer reveals secrets, But he who is of a faithful spirit conceals a matter.A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy person keeps a secret.
Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.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.
The hypocrite with his mouth destroys his neighbor, But through knowledge the righteous will be delivered.With their mouths the godless destroy their neighbors, but through knowledge the righteous escape.
Whoever hides hatred has lying lips, And whoever spreads slander is a fool.Whoever conceals hatred with lying lips and spreads slander is a fool.
Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.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.
A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, But perverseness in it breaks the spirit.The soothing tongue is a tree of life, but a perverse tongue crushes the spirit.
Keep your tongue from evil, And your lips from speaking deceit.Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies.
