THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Leviticus (Author Moses)

19:16Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people: neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbour: I am the LORD.

Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

15:1LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?

15:2He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.

15:3He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.

Proverbs (Author Solomon)

11:13A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.

16:28A froward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends.

17:9He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.

18:8The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.

20:19He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips.

26:20Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.

26:21As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire; so is a contentious man to kindle strife.

26:22The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.

1 Timothy (Author Paul)

5:11But the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry;

5:13And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.
