Tongues wow they can get you in trouble.
I have this trouble, I speak before I think when I get upset.
Some verses I have found about
Romans 3:13 (New
13"Their throats are open graves; their
tongues practice deceit." "The poison of vipers is on their lips."
21And all the people returned to the
camp to Joshua at Makkedah in peace: none moved his tongue against any of the
children of Israel.
5.So he brought down the people unto the water: and the LORD
said unto Gideon, Every one that lappeth of the water with his tongue, as a dog
lappeth, him shalt thou set by himself; likewise every one that boweth down upon
his knees to drink.
2 Samuel 23:2
2The Spirit of the LORD spake by me, and his word was in my
1 Corinthians 14:2-28 (New International Version)
2For anyone who speaks in a tongue[does not speak
to men but to God. Indeed, no one understands him; he utters mysteries with his
spirit.[ 3But everyone who prophesies speaks to men for their
strengthening, encouragement and comfort. 4He who speaks in a tongue edifies
himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church. 5I would like every one of
you to speak in tongues,[ but I would rather have you prophesy. He
who prophesies is greater than one who speaks in tongues, unless he interprets,
so that the church may be edified.
6Now, brothers, if I come to you and speak in tongues, what
good will I be to you, unless I bring you some revelation or knowledge or
prophecy or word of instruction? 7Even in the case of lifeless things that make
sounds, such as the flute or harp, how will anyone know what tune is being
played unless there is a distinction in the notes? 8Again, if the trumpet does
not sound a clear call, who will get ready for battle? 9So it is with you.
Unless you speak intelligible words with your tongue, how will anyone know what
you are saying? You will just be speaking into the air. 10Undoubtedly there are
all sorts of languages in the world, yet none of them is without meaning. 11If
then I do not grasp the meaning of what someone is saying, I am a foreigner to
the speaker, and he is a foreigner to me. 12So it is with you. Since you are
eager to have spiritual gifts, try to excel in gifts that build up the church.
13For this reason anyone who speaks in a tongue should pray
that he may interpret what he says. 14For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit
prays, but my mind is unfruitful. 15So what shall I do? I will pray with my
spirit, but I will also pray with my mind; I will sing with my spirit, but I
will also sing with my mind. 16If you are praising God with your spirit, how can
one who finds himself among those who do not understand say "Amen" to
your thanksgiving, since he does not know what you are saying? 17You may be
giving thanks well enough, but the other man is not edified.
18I thank God that I speak in tongues more than all of you.
19But in the church I would rather speak five intelligible words to instruct
others than ten thousand words in a tongue.
1 Corinthians 12:10
another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing
between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues and to still
another the interpretation of tongues.
20Brothers, stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be
infants, but in your thinking be adults. 21In the Law it is written:
"Through men of strange tongues and through the lips of foreigners
I will speak to this people, but even then they will not listen to me,"[
says the Lord. 22Tongues, then, are a sign, not for believers but for
unbelievers; prophecy, however, is for believers, not for unbelievers. 23So if
the whole church comes together and everyone speaks in tongues, and some who do
not understand [or some unbelievers come in, will they not say that
you are out of your mind? 24But if an unbeliever or someone who does not
understand ]comes in while everybody is prophesying, he will be
convinced by all that he is a sinner and will be judged by all, 25and the
secrets of his heart will be laid bare. So he will fall down and worship God,
exclaiming, "God is really among you!"
26What then shall we say, brothers? When you come together,
everyone has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an
interpretation. All of these must be done for the strengthening of the church.
27If anyone speaks in a tongue, two—or at the most three—should speak, one at a
time, and someone must interpret. 28If there is no interpreter, the speaker
should keep quiet in the church and speak to himself and God.
1 Corinthians 4:13 (New International Version)
13when we are slandered, we answer kindly. Up to this moment we
have become the scum of the earth, the refuse of the world.
