We are meditating on the types of speech that the Bible warns against. Here are some additional words that believers should not speak.

Backbiting words:

He that backbiteth not with his tongue... (Psalms 15:3)

Words of discord:

...he that soweth discord among brethren. (Proverbs 6:19)

Contentious words:

A fool's lips enter into contention, and his mouth calleth for strokes. (Proverbs 18:6)

Words of strife:

Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues. (Psalms 31:20)

Devouring and deceitful words:

Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue. (Psalms 52:4)

Froward and perverse words:

Put away from thee a froward mouth and perverse lips put far from thee. (Proverbs 4:24)

Mischievous words:

They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long. (Psalms 38:12)

Tale-bearing words:

A talebearer revealeth secrets; but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter. (Proverbs 11:13)

Filthy words:

But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. (Colossians 3:8)


My FATHER, My God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree PROGRESS, FAVOR, HONOR, AND INFLUENCE are my portion. My life is SALTED, My speech is SALTED, My Home and Business are SALTED in the name of Jesus.
