8 The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to the inmost parts.
8 The words of a talebearer talebearer: or, whisperer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
8 The words of a whisperer are like delicious morsels; they go down into the inner parts of the body.
8 Listening to gossip is like eating cheap candy; do you really want junk like that in your belly?
8 The words of a talebearer are like tasty trifles, And they go down into the inmost body.
8 Rumors are dainty morsels that sink deep into one's heart.
(Read Proverbs 18:8)
How base are those that sow contention! and what fatal effects may be expected from small beginnings of jealousy!
