Words are powerful. They kill, justify and condemn.

Many speak death over themselves;

They say “… is killing me!”

And that is exactly what happens:

Proverbs 6:2 Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.

Those with understanding use words carefully;

Proverbs 21:23 Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.

Matthew 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

Matthew 12:37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Ancient Hebrew Lexicon of the Bible:


Thing: As something that is arranged. In Hebrew thought, words contain substance just as physical objects do.
