19 In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.
19 Sin is not ended by multiplying words, but the prudent hold their tongues.
19 When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent.
19 The more talk, the less truth; the wise measure their words.
19 In the multitude of words sin is not lacking, But he who restrains his lips is wise.
19 Too much talk leads to sin. Be sensible and keep your mouth shut.

(Read Proverbs 10:19)
Those that speak much, speak much amiss. He that checks himself is a wise man, and therein consults his own peace.
