The body part that leads to separation of mankind from God.

Taming the tongue an impress godliness through praise and worship

Proverbs 21:23 ESV 

Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble.

Ephesians 4:29 ESV 

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

Proverbs 15:1 ESV 

A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

James 1:26 ESV 

If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless.

Psalm 141:3 ESV 

Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!

James 3:2-10 ESV 

For we all stumble in many ways. And if anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle his whole body. If we put bits into the mouths of horses so that they obey us, we guide their whole bodies as well. Look at the ships also: though they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are guided by a very small rudder wherever the will of the pilot directs. So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great things. How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire! And the tongue is a fire, a world of unrighteousness. The tongue is set among our members, staining the whole body, setting on fire the entire course of life, and set on fire by hell. ...

Proverbs 12:18 ESV 

There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.

Psalm 34:13 ESV 

Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit.

Proverbs 18:21 ESV 

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.

Proverbs 17:28 ESV 

Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.

1 Peter 3:10 ESV 

For “Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit;

Proverbs 15:4 ESV 

A gentle tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.

Matthew 15:11 ESV 

It is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person.”

Matthew 12:33-37 ESV 

“Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad, for the tree is known by its fruit. You brood of vipers! How can you speak good, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. The good person out of his good treasure brings forth good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure brings forth evil. I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Proverbs 10:19 ESV 

When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent.

Titus 3:2 ESV 

To speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.

Thanks stay blessed always.
