Silence is Golden

Proverbs 10:19

When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable, But he who restrains his lips is wise. [NASB]

[In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise. KJV]

Let us specially avoid talking too much. Silence is golden. Yet the tongue of the just is as choice silver and the lips of the righteous feed many, Proverbs 10:20-21. When we speak, let us say something and let the people to whom we speak feel that their heart is lighter and that the heavenly horizons are nearer and clearer. Whatever you do, beware of uttering slander, Proverbs 10:18. You know, by your own experience, what is acceptable; see to it that your mouth brings forth wisdom and grace, Proverbs 10:31-32. (F.B. Meyer)
