“Whoso is keeping his mouth and his tongue, Is keeping from adversities his soul.” (Proverbs 21:23)
“If any one doth think to be religious among you, not bridling his tongue, but deceiving his heart, of this one vain is the religion;” (James 1:26)
“for we all make many stumbles; if any one in word doth not stumble, this one is a perfect man, able to bridle also the whole body;” (James 3:2)
“and the tongue no one of men is able to subdue, it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison,” (James 3:8)
