12:34 Offspring of vipers! How are you able to say anything good, since you are evil? For the mouth speaks from what fills the heart. 12:35 The good person 1 brings good things out of his 2 good treasury, 3 and the evil person brings evil things out of his evil treasury. 12:36 I 4 tell you that on the day of judgment, people will give an account for every worthless word they speak. 12:37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
