But a harsh word stirs up anger.

But the mouth of fools pours forth folly.

A tongue that brings healing is a tree of life,
But perversion in it breaks the spirit.

Proverbs 15:7

The lips of the wise disperse knowledge,
But the hearts of fools are not so.

Proverbs 15:23

A man has gladness in an apt answer,
And how good is a timely word!

Proverbs 15:26

Evil thoughts are an abomination to Yahweh,
But pleasant words are pure.
