“Heare, O yee children, the discipline of the mouth: He that keepeth it, shall neuer be taken in his lippes.”
King James Version (KJV)
4. O Lord, father and God of my life, giue me not a proud looke, but turne away from thy seruants alwaies a haughty minde: 5. Turne away from mee vaine hopes, and concupiscence, and thou shalt hold him vp that is desirous alwaies to serue thee. 6. Let not the greedinesse of the belly, nor lust of the flesh take hold of me, and giue not ouer me thy seruant into an impudent minde. 7. Heare, O yee children, the discipline of the mouth: He that keepeth it, shall neuer be taken in his lippes. 8. The sinner shall be left in his foolishnesse: both the euill speaker and the proud shall fall thereby. 9. Accustome not thy mouth to swearing: neither vse thy selfe to the naming of the holy one. 10. For as a seruant that is continually beaten, shall not be without a blew marke: so hee that sweareth and nameth God continually, shal not be faultlesse.
