Titus 1:10

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 10 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, especially of the circumcision; [Unruly, vain talkers, and deceivers preached and taught their vain opinions from the thoughts of their carnal minds and imaginations instead of only preaching words they heard commanded by the Spirit immediately before speaking. The circumcision taught male circumcision was necessary.]

Matthew 12:36-37

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 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: "People don't realize the evil that comes from their mouth. All talk is an abomination. Conversation is to be restricted so much that you are ostracized. 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. "But let your 'yes' be 'yes,' and your 'no,' 'no;' for whatever is more than these comes from the evil one (the spirit of Satan within you)." Mat 5:37.]

 37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned."4 [For we all err in many things; and if any man does not err in his words, he is a perfect man. James 3:2. So if you are going to be condemned for speaking idle words, and if you cannot control your words until you are perfect, then perfection is obviously required to be justified and saved. We must make the tree good, (perfect) to produce good fruit, or it will be cut down and cast into the fire. From the Word of the Lord within: "A good tree is a holy tree. You must be holy as I am holy. Pursue righteousness and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord." ]

James 1:26

 26 If anyone among you considers himself to be religious but does not bridle [restrain] his tongue, he deceives his own heart [thinking to be religious], and this man's religion is worthless.6 [From the Word of the Lord within: "People don't realize the evil that comes from their mouth. All talk is an abomination." For we all err in many things; and if any man does not err in his words, he is a perfect man, and able also to control his whole body. James 3:2. The fruit of a tongue that roams is death: "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it shall eat its fruit." Pro 18:21]

Proverbs 18:21

 21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it shall eat its fruit.1 [From the Word of the Lord within: "People don't realize the evil that comes from their mouth. All talk is an abomination. Conversation is to be restricted so much that you are ostracized." Those who love to talk will never see salvation; the fruit of a tongue that roams is death.]

Ecclesiastes 5:2-3

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 2 Do not be rash with your mouth, and do not let your heart be hasty to utter anything before God. For God is in heaven, and you are upon the earth; therefore let your words be few.2

 3 For a dream comes through the multitude of business; and a fool's voice is known by multitude of words.
