Proverbs 18:6-8 World English Bible (WEB)

A fool’s lips come into strife,
    and his mouth invites beatings.
A fool’s mouth is his destruction,
    and his lips are a snare to his soul.
The words of a gossip are like dainty morsels:
    they go down into a person’s innermost parts.

Proverbs 18:6-8 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

A fool’s lips [a]bring strife,
And his mouth calls for blows.
A fool’s mouth is his ruin,
And his lips are the snare of his soul.
The words of a whisperer are like dainty morsels,
And they go down into the [b]innermost parts of the body.
