A Calm Tongue….

A calm tongue is a tree of life, But twisted speech causes despair.

===================================================

Solomon further stresses the value of a gentle tongue, saying: “The calmness of the tongue is a tree of life, but distortion in it means a breaking down in the spirit.” The expression “tree of life” suggests healing and nourishing properties.

A wise person’s calm speech refreshes the spirit of those hearing it. It appeals to their good qualities. On the contrary, a deceitful or perverse tongue causes the hearers’ spirit to be crushed.
