23 “You shall not spread a false report. You shall not join hands with a wicked man to be a malicious witness.
13 Keep your tongue from evil
and your lips from speaking deceit.
5 Whoever slanders his neighbor secretly
I will destroy.
Whoever has a haughty look and an arrogant heart
I will not endure.
25 A truthful witness saves lives,
but a false witness is a traitor.
28 A dishonest man spreads strife,
and a whisperer separates close friends.
19 Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets;
therefore do not associate with a simple babbler.
29 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.
