Ecclesiasticus 28:13-26

13Curse the whisperer and doubletongued: for such have destroyed many that were at peace.
14A backbiting tongue hath disquieted many, and driven them from nation to nation: strong cities hath it pulled down, and overthrown the houses of great men.
15A backbiting tongue hath cast out virtuous women, and deprived them of their labours.
16Whoso hearkeneth unto it shall never find rest, and never dwell quietly.
17The stroke of the whip maketh marks in the flesh: but the stroke of the tongue breaketh the bones.
18Many have fallen by the edge of the sword: but not so many as have fallen by the tongue.
19Well is he that is defended through the venom thereof; who hath not drawn the yoke thereof, nor hath been bound in her bands.
20For the yoke thereof is a yoke of iron, and the bands thereof are bands of brass.
21The death thereof is an evil death, the grave were better than it.
22It shall not have rule over them that fear God, neither shall they be burned with the flame thereof.
23Such as forsake the Lord shall fall into it; and it shall burn in them, and not be quenched; it shall be sent upon them as a lion, and devour them as a leopard.
24Look that thou hedge thy possession about with thorns, and bind up thy silver and gold,
25And weigh thy words in a balance, and make a door and bar for thy mouth.
26Beware thou slide not by it, lest thou fall before him that lieth in wait.
