James 1:26. If anyone among you thinks himself to be religious while he doesn’t bridle his tongue, but deceives his heart, this man’s religion is worthless.

James 3:2-5. If anyone doesn’t stumble in word, the same is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body also. Indeed, we put bits into the horses’ mouths so that they may obey us, and we guide their whole body. Behold, the ships also, though they are so big and are driven by fierce winds, are yet guided by a very small rudder, wherever the pilot desires. So the tongue is also a little member, and boasts great things.

Proverbs 4:24. Put away from yourself a perverse mouth. Put corrupt lips far from you.

Proverbs 10:18. He who hides hatred has lying lips. He who utters a slander is a fool.

Proverbs 13:3. He who guards his mouth guards his soul. One who opens wide his lips comes to ruin.

Proverbs 14:23. In all hard work there is profit, but the talk of the lips leads only to poverty.

Proverbs 17:4. An evildoer heeds wicked lips. A liar gives ear to a mischievous tongue.

Proverbs 20:19. He who goes about as a tale-bearer reveals secrets; therefore don’t keep company with him who opens wide his lips.

Psalm 39:1. I will watch my ways, so that I don’t sin with my tongue. I will keep my mouth with a bridle while the wicked is before me.

2 Thessalonians 3:11-12. We hear of some who walk among you in rebellion, who don’t work at all, but are busybodies. Now those who are that way, we command and exhort in the Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.
