THE BIBLE SAYSÖ

Compiled by Daniel L. Wakefield

 

         Psalm 19:14 ††††††††††††††††† Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

 

         Proverbs 18:20-21††††††† A manís belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

 

         Jeremiah 1:6-9 †††††††††††† Then said I, Ah, Lord God! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child. 7But the Lord said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak. 8Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord. 9Then the Lord put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the Lord said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth

 

         Jeremiah 20:9 †††††††††††††† Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.

 

         Matthew 12:34 ††††††††††††† O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

 

         Matthew 21:20-22†††††††† And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, if ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

 

         Luke 6:45 †††††††††††††††††††††† A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

 

         Romans 10:8-10 ††††††††† But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

 

         Titus 2:15†††††††††††††††††††††† These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

 

         James 3:10-13†††††††††††††† Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries?either a vine, figs?so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you?let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
