The Mouth of the Righteous

(Proverbs 11:27) He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour: but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him.

(Proverbs 17:20) He that hath a froward heart findeth no good: and he that hath a perverse tongue falleth into mischief.

(Proverbs 11:18-20) The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth righteousness [shall be] a sure reward. As righteousness [tendeth] to life: so he that pursueth evil [pursueth it] to his own death. They that are of a froward heart [are] abomination to the LORD: but [such as are] upright in [their] way [are] his delight.

(Proverbs 10:6-11) Blessings [are] upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked. The memory of the just [is] blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot. The wise in heart will receive commandments: but a prating fool shall fall. He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known. He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow: but a prating fool shall fall. The mouth of a righteous [man is] a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.

(Proverbs 6:12-19) A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth. He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers; Frowardness [is] in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord. Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy. These six [things] doth the LORD hate: yea, seven [are] an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness [that] speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

(Proverbs 19:8, 9) He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good. A false witness shall not be unpunished, and [he that] speaketh lies shall perish.

(Proverbs 14:5) A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies.

(Proverbs 12:17-22) [He that] speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit. There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise [is] health. The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue [is] but for a moment. Deceit [is] in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace [is] joy. There shall no evil happen to the just: but the wicked shall be filled with mischief. Lying lips [are] abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly [are] his delight.
