 36 But I say to you, for every idle [non-edifying] word that men speak, they will give an account of the same in the day of judgment. [From the Word of the Lord within: "All talk is an abomination. Conversation is to be restricted so much that you are ostracized. Let your yes be yes and your no be no. Let your words be as few as possible." Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth except what is edifying, so that it may minister grace to those who hear you. Eph 4:29.]

 37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned."4

James 3:2
