For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.

But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken.
So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.
Open your mouth for the speechless, In the cause of all who are appointed to die.Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.
In the multitude of words sin is not lacking, But he who restrains his lips is wise.Sin is not ended by multiplying words, but the prudent hold their tongues.
A man has joy by the answer of his mouth, And a word spoken in due season, how good it is!A person finds joy in giving an apt reply— and how good is a timely word!
My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
A soft answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger.A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
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.
For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.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.
Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother.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.
The words of a wise man’s mouth are gracious, But the lips of a fool shall swallow him up.Words from the mouth of the wise are gracious, but fools are consumed by their own lips.

For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness.
