21 Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.
21 The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.
21 The tongue has the power of life and death,(A) and those who love it will eat its fruit.(B)
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue,And those who love it and indulge it will eat its fruit and bear the consequences of their words.(A)
21 (A)Death and life are in the power of the tongue,And those who love it will eat its fruit.
