Shut Your Mouth: 23 Amazing Bible Verses that Help

When to Shut Your Mouth

Do you know that sometimes it is better to shut your mouth than talk? The Holy Scripture is our life manual as it provides us the right choices conveying how God expects us to behave in different circumstances. The Holy Spirit will remind you of the verses you read in the Bible at the appropriate time.

Don’t open your mouth as talking too much can get anyone into trouble. Keeping your mouth shut is preferable than saying the wrong things at the wrong time.

Shut Your Mouth - Proverbs 13: 3

In the heat of anger.

He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly: and a man of wicked devices is hated. Proverbs 14:17

When it is time to listen.

A wise son heareth his father’s instruction: but a scorner heareth not
rebuke. Proverbs 13:1

If your words will damage a friendship.

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

When you are supposed to be working instead.

In all labour there is profit: but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury. Proverbs 14:23

If your words will be a poor reflection of the Lord or your friends and family.

21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us,
leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he
threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:

1 Peter 2:21-23

When you don’t have all the facts.

He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him. Proverbs 18:13

When you haven’t verified the story.

At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of
death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put
to death. Deuteronomy 17:6

If your words will offend a weaker brother.

And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ
died? 1 Corinthians 8:11

When you are tempted to make light of holy things.

Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any
thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let
thy words be few. Ecclesiastes 5:2

If the issue is none of your business.

The heart knoweth his own bitterness; and a stranger doth not intermeddle
with his joy. Proverbs 14:10

When you are tempted to joke about sin.

Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favour. Proverbs 14:9

If you would be ashamed of your words later.

All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or
perverse in them. Proverbs 8:8

If your words would convey the wrong impression.

He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is
of an excellent spirit. Proverbs 17:27

If you have already said it more than one time.

A foolish son is the calamity of his father: and the contentions of a wife are
a continual dropping. Proverbs 19:13

When you are tempted to tell an outright lie.

Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.
Proverbs 4:24

If your words will damage someone else’s reputation.

An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips there is as a burning fire.
Proverbs 16:27

When you are feeling critical.

With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men,
who have been made in God’s likeness. James 3:9

When you are tempted to flatter a wicked person.

He that saith unto the wicked, Thou are righteous; him shall the people
curse, nations shall abhor him: Proverbs 24:24

If you can’t say it without screaming it.

He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down,
and without walls. Proverbs 25:28

If you may have to eat your words later.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat
the fruit thereof. Proverbs 18:21

If you talk too much you may get into all kinds of troubles. Remember:
Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
Proverbs 21:23

You often do not shut your mouth when you are angry or irritated or upset or sad or simply want to reiterate your point of view, however, if you shut your mouth, it not only stops irreversible damage to your relationships but also brings sanity to your life. Sometimes, you have to shut your mouth and need to listen to the opinion of others.
