Proverbs 21:23 - He who guards his mouth and his tongue...

NIV He who guards his mouth and his tongue
keeps himself from calamity.
KJV Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
NASB He who guards his mouth and his tongue,
Guards his soul from troubles.
Proverbs 21:23


The Bible speaks of keeping the tongue from evil (Ps. 34:13), of guarding the tongue (Prov. 21:23), and of bridling the tongue (James 1:26). The tongue is an indicator of a person's spirit: It reveals what is in the heart (Matt. 12:33-37; 15:18; Luke 6:43-45).
