Proverbs 12:6 Watch your tongue…

Today's verse contrasts the way that wicked men speak with the life giving way that people who follow God talk, and shows what results from each manner of talking.

Proverbs 12: 6 (NKJV)
6 The words of the wicked are, “Lie in wait for blood,”
But the mouth of the upright will deliver them.

wicked: 1. Evil by nature and in practice 2. Highly offensive; obnoxious
Adhering strictly to moral principles; righteous

To set free, as from misery, peril, or evil

Those that are offensive, obnoxious, and evil in everything they think or do show the things that are in their hearts by spewing it out in their words. They plan evil and death with their friends.

In contrast, people that stick to high moral principles speak words of comfort, love, care, and peace… things that will help them to be set free from misery, peril or evil when they find themselves in difficult circumstances.
