3 xSet a guard, O Lord, over my mouth;
ykeep watch over the door of my lips!
8 qThe wise of heart will receive commandments,
but a babbling fool will come to ruin.
19 eWhen words are many, transgression is not lacking,
fbut whoever restrains his lips is prudent.
3 tWhoever guards his mouth preserves his life;
27 Whoever wrestrains his words has knowledge,
and he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding.
28 Even a fool xwho keeps silent is considered wise;
when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.
