My words shall express the uprightness of my heart, and my lips shall speak what they know with utter sincerity.
Hear the right (my righteous cause), O Lord; listen to my shrill, piercing cry! Give ear to my prayer, that comes from unfeigned and guileless lips.
1 Samuel 1:13
Hannah was speaking in her heart; only her lips moved but her voice was not heard. So Eli thought she was drunk.
I have proclaimed glad tidings of righteousness in the great assembly [tidings of uprightness and right standing with God]. Behold, I have not restrained my lips, as You know, O Lord.
You are fairer than the children of men; graciousness is poured upon Your lips; therefore God has blessed You forever.
O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall show forth Your praise.
I will come into Your house with burnt offerings [of entire consecration]; I will pay You my vows,
My lips shall shout for joy when I sing praises to You, and my inner being, which You have redeemed.
With my lips have I declared and recounted all the ordinances of Your mouth.
The lips of the [uncompromisingly] righteous feed and guide many, but fools die for want of understanding and heart.
Take with you words and return to the Lord. Say to Him, Take away all our iniquity; accept what is good and receive us graciously; so will we render [our thanks] as bullocks [to be sacrificed] and pay the confession of our lips.
Through Him, therefore, let us constantly and at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name.
