Bible Verses about Speaking

  • The tongue has the power of life and death,
    and those who love it will eat its fruit.
  • A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.
  • 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.
  • Those who guard their lips preserve their lives,
    but those who speak rashly will come to ruin.
  • Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.
  • The soothing tongue is a tree of life,
    but a perverse tongue crushes the spirit.
  • Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent,
    and discerning if they hold their tongues.
  • But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken.
  • My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.
  • Sin is not ended by multiplying words,
    but the prudent hold their tongues.
  • Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
    for the rights of all who are destitute.
  • A person finds joy in giving an apt reply—
    and how good is a timely word!
  • A gentle answer turns away wrath,
    but a harsh word stirs up anger.
  • Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
  • We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check.
  • A gossip betrays a confidence,
    but a trustworthy person keeps a secret.
  • Words from the mouth of the wise are gracious,
    but fools are consumed by their own lips.
  • If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over.
  • My mouth is filled with your praise,
    declaring your splendor all day long.
  • Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.
  • What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.
  • If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
  • Plans fail for lack of counsel,
    but with many advisers they succeed.
  • In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.
  • And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.

Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
