67 Bible Verses about Speaking (2/3)

English Standard Version (ESV)
From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so.
Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.
So shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
A fool takes no pleasure in understanding,
but only in expressing his opinion.
Gracious words are like a honeycomb,
sweetness to the soul and health to the body.
Deliver me, O Lord,
from lying lips,
from a deceitful tongue.
With his mouth the godless man would destroy his neighbor,
but by knowledge the righteous are delivered.
In all toil there is profit,
but mere talk tends only to poverty.
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable in your sight,
O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable,
but the mouth of the wicked, what is perverse.
For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
In my distress I called upon the Lord;
to my God I cried for help.
From his temple he heard my voice,
and my cry to him reached his ears.
A fool's lips walk into a fight,
and his mouth invites a beating.
The one who conceals hatred has lying lips,
and whoever utters slander is a fool.
Anxiety in a man's heart weighs him down,
but a good word makes him glad.
But above all, my brothers, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath, but let your “yes” be yes and your “no” be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation.
Keep your tongue from evil
and your lips from speaking deceit.
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart;
I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.
Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret.
And when they bring you to trial and deliver you over, do not be anxious beforehand what you are to say, but say whatever is given you in that hour, for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit.
But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine.
It is an honor for a man to keep aloof from strife,
but every fool will be quarreling.
Open your mouth, judge righteously,
defend the rights of the poor and needy.
