The one who goes about slandering others 1 reveals 2 secrets, but the one who is trustworthy 3 conceals a matter.
The one who goes about gossiping 1 reveals secrets; therefore do not associate 2 with someone who is always opening his mouth. 3
You must not go about as a slanderer among your people. 1 You must not stand idly by when your neighbor’s life is at stake. 2 I am the Lord.
I reported, 1 “All of them are the most stubborn of rebels! 2 They are as hard as bronze or iron. They go about telling lies. They all deal corruptly.
Everyone must be on his guard around his friends. He must not even trust any of his relatives. 1 For every one of them will find some way to cheat him. 2 And all of his friends will tell lies about him.
Slanderous men shed blood within you. 1 Those who live within you eat pagan sacrifices on the mountains; 2 they commit obscene acts among you. 3
