<< Matthew 15:11 >>



  • Mark 7:15
    Nothing that goes into a person from outside can defile him but the things that come out of a person are what defile him.”
  • Matthew 15:18-20
    But what comes out of the mouth comes from the heart, and this defiles a person.For from the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, sexual immoralities, thefts, false testimonies, slander.These are the things that defile a person; but eating with unwashed hands does not defile a person.”
  • Matthew 12:34-37
    Brood of vipers! How can you speak good things when you are evil? For the mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart.A good person produces good things from his storeroom of good, and an evil person produces evil things from his storeroom of evil.I tell you that on the day of judgment people will have to account for every careless word they speak.For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”
  • Acts 10:14-15

    When the Pharisee saw this, he was amazed that he did not first perform the ritual washing before dinner.But the Lord said to him,“ Now you Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside you are full of greed and evil.Fools! Didn’t he who made the outside make the inside too?But give from what is within to the poor, and then everything is clean for you.
  • Psalms 12:2
    They lie to one another; they speak with flattering lips and deceptive hearts.
  • Psalms 52:2-4
    Like a sharpened razor, your tongue devises destruction, working treachery.You love evil instead of good, lying instead of speaking truthfully. SelahYou love any words that destroy, you treacherous tongue!
  • James 3:5-8
    So too, though the tongue is a small part of the body, it boasts great things. Consider how a small fire sets ablaze a large forest.And the tongue is a fire. The tongue, a world of unrighteousness, is placed among our members. It stains the whole body, sets the course of life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.Every kind of animal, bird, reptile, and fish is tamed and has been tamed by humankind,but no one can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
  • Isaiah 59:13-15
    transgression and deception against the LORD, turning away from following our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering lying words from the heart.Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands far off. For truth has stumbled in the public square, and honesty cannot enter.Truth is missing, and whoever turns from evil is plundered. The LORD saw that there was no justice, and he was offended.
  • Acts 11:8-9

  • Psalms 10:7
    Cursing, deceit, and violence fill his mouth; trouble and malice are under his tongue.
  • Jeremiah 9:3-6
    They bent their tongues like their bows; lies and not faithfulness prevail in the land, for they proceed from one evil to another, and they do not take me into account. This is the LORD’s declaration.Everyone has to be on guard against his friend. Don’t trust any brother, for every brother will certainly deceive, and every friend spread slander.Each one betrays his friend; no one tells the truth. They have taught their tongues to speak lies; they wear themselves out doing wrong.You live in a world of deception. In their deception they refuse to know me. This is the LORD’s declaration.
  • Psalms 58:3-4
    The wicked go astray from the womb; liars wander about from birth.They have venom like the venom of a snake, like the deaf cobra that stops up its ears,
  • Isaiah 59:3-5
    For your hands are defiled with blood and your fingers, with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, and your tongues mutter injustice.No one makes claims justly; no one pleads honestly. They trust in empty and worthless words; they conceive trouble and give birth to iniquity.They hatch viper’s eggs and weave spider’s webs. Whoever eats their eggs will die; crack one open, and a viper is hatched.

  • 2 Peter 2 18
    For by uttering boastful, empty words, they seduce, with fleshly desires and debauchery, people who have barely escaped from those who live in error.
