Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
My lips shall not speak unrighteousness, nor my tongue utter deceit!
For my palate shall meditate truth, and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
1 Thessalonians 2:3
For our exhortation was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile;
Should a wise man answer with windy knowledge, and fill his belly with the east wind,
I will fetch my knowledge from afar, and will ascribe righteousness to my Creator.
Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
The mouth of the righteous proffereth wisdom, and his tongue speaketh judgment;
The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright; but the mouth of the foolish poureth out folly.
There is gold, and a multitude of rubies; but the lips of knowledge are a precious Jewel.
Hear now my defence, and hearken to the pleadings of my lips.
