Sirach 5:13
Speaking brings glory or dishonor. Indeed, the tongue can be a person’s downfall.
Be meek to hear the word, that thou mayst understand: and return a true answer with wisdom.
Speaking can bring you either honor or disgrace; what you say can ruin you.
Honor and dishonor through speaking! The tongue can be your downfall.
Honor and dishonor come from speaking, and the tongue of mortals may be their downfall.
Honour and dishonour come from speaking, and the tongue of mortals may be their downfall.
Honour and dishonour come from speaking, and the tongue of mortals may be their downfall.
Honor and dishonor come from speaking, and the tongue of mortals may be their downfall.
Glory and dishonor come from speaking, and a man’s tongue is his downfall.
Glory and dishonor come from speaking, and a man’s tongue is his downfall.
Honour and glory is in the word of a wise man; but the tongue of an unprudent man is his destroying. [Worship and glory in the word of the well-feeling; the tongue forsooth of the unprudent is the turning upside-down of him.]
