"You shall not go about as a talebearer among your people; nor shall you take a stand against the life of your neighbour: I am the Lord."
"The words of a talebearer are like tasty trifles (wounds), And they go down into the inmost body."
"He who goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets; Therefore do not associate with one who flatters with his lips."
"A talebearer reveals secrets, But he who is of a faithful spirit conceals a matter."
"A perverse man sows strife, And a whisperer separates the best of friends."
"Your tongue devises destruction, Like a sharp razor, working deceitfully."
"The north wind brings forth rain, And a backbiting tongue an angry countenance."
"Where there is no wood, the fire goes out; And where there is no talebearer, strife ceases. As charcoal is to burning coals, and wood to fire, So is a contentious man to kindle strife."
"Keep your tongue from evil, And your lips from speaking deceit."
