In the sin of the lips is a net which takes the sinner, but the upright man will come out of trouble.
He who keeps a watch on his mouth keeps his life; but he whose lips are open wide will have destruction.
He who has knowledge says little: and he who has a calm spirit is a man of good sense.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue; and those to whom it is dear will have its fruit for their food.
If a man seems to have religion and has no control over his tongue but lets himself be tricked by what is false, this man's religion is of no value.
For we all go wrong in a number of things. If a man never makes a slip in his talk, then he is a complete man and able to keep all his body in control.
