WATCH YOUR MOUTH!

When I was growing up, every so often some of the older kids would use some words I wasn’t supposed to say and whatever adult happened to be around would respond, in a disciplinary tone of voice, with “WATCH YOUR MOUTH!”

Proverbs 10:11, in the English Standard Version (ESV), matter of factly states

“The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life, but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.”

Now the question is ‘Which part of the verse describes the words, conversation, and commentary that comes out of MY mouth?’ (Or yours?)

Which kind of mouth do we have?
