Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
Psalm 19:14 (KJV)
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Proverbs 18:21 (KJV)
The soothing tongue is a tree of life, but a perverse tongue crushes the spirit.
Proverbs 15:14 (KJV)
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Ephesians 4: 29-32 (KJV)
But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
Matthew 12: 36 (KJV)
Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
Proverbs 16:24 (KJV)
Rash language cuts and maims,but there is healing in the words of the wise.
Proverbs 12:18 (Message)
Every single word we choose to speak is a
victorious life-giving sparkling diamond
or a discouraging darkened poisoned
arrow of defeat. May all our words be
joyous,healing, hope-filled encouraging
gifts of glittering diamonds to those we have
been called to esteem higher than ourselves.
May the words of my mouth and the meditation
my heart be acceptable in thy sight O Lord
my strength and my redeemer. May this be
our moment to moment to moment prayer.
