And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, But what saith it?
The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.
A fool's mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.
A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Proverbs 18:4, 7, 20, 21
for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
Matthew 12: 34b, 36, 37
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence.
He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.
Proverbs 13:2, 3
For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
And I know that his commandment is life everlasting; whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
John 12: 49, 50
I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.
Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.
The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.
Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips there is as a burning fire.
He shutteth his eyes to devise froward things: moving his lips he bringeth evil to pass.
Proverbs 16:21, 23, 24, 27, 30
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
II Corinthians 4:13
Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong.
If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.
There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
