This chapter contains proverbs that contrast righteous living versus unrighteous living. Many verses deal with the words and their importance. One of my favorite is verse 19:
Too much talk leads to sin.The Voice says it this way:
Be sensible and keep your mouth shut.
The more you talk, the more likely you will cross the line and say the wrong thing; but if you are wise you'll speak less and with restraint.On yes, I need to restrain my mouth sometimes!
