• James 1:19
    So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath;
     
  • Proverbs 10:19
    In the multitude of words sin is not lacking,
    But he who restrains his lips is wise.

     
  • Ecclesiastes 5:2
    Do not be rash with your mouth,
    And let not your heart utter anything hastily before God.
    For God is in heaven, and you on earth;
    Therefore let your words be few.

     
  • Ecclesiastes 5:6-7
    Do not let your mouth cause your flesh to sin, nor say before the messenger of God that it was an error. Why should God be angry at your excuse and destroy the work of your hands? For in the multitude of dreams and many words there is also vanity. But fear God.
