WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT:    'TALKING TOO MUCH'

[Scripture in red indicates wisdom or instruction from our Savior and God's only Son, Jesus Christ.]

Psalms 39: 1-3 It is good to curb your tongue around the ungodly by not joining in to their evil talk. But, is it also good to remain silent? Is remaining silent condoning that talk?

Proverbs 10: 14 The babbling of a fool invites trouble.

Proverbs 10: 18-19 To hide hatred is to be a liar; to slander is to be a fool. Don't talk too much, for it fosters sin. Be sensible and turn off the flow!

Proverbs 12: 23 Wise people don't make a show of their knowledge, but fools broadcast their folly.

Proverbs 13: 3 Those who control their tongue will have a long life, while a quick retort can ruin everything. Think how your words will be interpreted before you speak.

Proverbs 14: 3 The talk of fools is like a rod for their backs.

Proverbs 15: 28 The godly think before speaking; the wicked spout evil words.

Proverbs 16: 21-23 Instruction is appreciated if it is well presented. From a wise mind comes wise speech. The words of the wise are persuasive.

Proverbs 17: 27-28 A truly wise person uses few words. A person with understanding is even-tempered. Even fools are thought to be wise when they keep silent.

Proverbs 18: 2 Fools have no interest in understanding. They only want to air their own opinions.

Proverbs 18: 6-7 Fools get into constant quarrels; they are asking for a beating. The mouths of fools are their ruin; their lips get them into trouble.

Proverbs 18: 21 Those who love to talk will experience the consequences, for the tongue can kill or nourish life.

Proverbs 20: 15 Wise speech is rarer and more valuable than gold and rubies.

Proverbs 20: 19 A gossip tells secrets, so don't hang around with someone who talks too much.

Proverbs 21: 11 A simpleton learns only by punishment; a wise person learns from instruction.

Proverbs 21: 23 If you keep your mouth shut, you will stay out of trouble.

Proverbs 22: 14 The mouth of an immoral person is a deep pit.

Proverbs 26: 23-26 Watch out for smooth talkers.

Proverbs 29: 20 There is no more hope for a fool than for someone who speaks without thinking.

Proverbs 30: 32 If you have gotten something by deception, trickery or smooth talking, don't brag about it. Cover your mouth in shame.

Ecclesiastes 5: 7 Dreaming all the time instead of working is foolishness. And there is ruin saying empty words.

Ecclesiastes 6: 11 The more words you speak, the less they mean.

Matthew 12: 36-37 Jesus said, 'You must give an account on Judgment Day for every word you speak. The words you say now reflect your fate then. Either you will be justified by them or you will be condemned.'

Romans 16: 17-20 Stay away from those who upset peoples' faith by teaching things contrary to Christ. They are serving their own personal interests. By smooth talk and glowing words they deceive innocent people.

Ephesians 4: 29 Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths. Let everything you say be good and helpful, as fits the occasion, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.

Ephesians 5: 4 Obscene stories, foolish talk, and coarse jokes are not for you. Instead, let there be thankfulness to God.

Colossians 4: 5-6 Live wisely among those who are not Christians, and make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be gracious and effective so that you will have the right answer for everyone.

Titus 3: 2 Do not speak evil of anyone, and avoid quarreling. Be gentle and show true humility to everyone.

James 1: 19-20 Be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. Your anger can never make things right in God's sight.

James 3: 14-16 If you are bitterly jealous about what other people have accomplished and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don't brag about being wise. That is the worst kind of lie. Wherever there is jealousy, there you will find disorder and every kind of evil

Results Can Vary: Common words are ignored (such as: "if, for, and, because, when, what, where..."). If a word is not found in our keyword database, that word is also ignored. For example, 'sowing love' could find a passage referring to forbidden foods listed in the Old Testament because 'sowing' is not a keyword and 'cloven' includes the characters 'love.' Finally, not all Bible text is searched. Only significant words are considered, although that list is being constantly refined.
Note to Readers: This is a condensed representation derived from several versions of the Christian Bible. Scripture and other information are presented here so readers can refer to and interpret the same passages in their preferred versions.
