But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
Let your speech [be] alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and [your] nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.
