The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips.

Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth. As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire; so is a contentious man to kindle strife. The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
