Here are the 30 most important Bible scriptures on communication.
Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger.
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!
Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.
1 Corinthians 2:14
The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.
2 Timothy 2:16
But avoid irreverent babble, for it will lead people into more and more ungodliness.
2 Timothy 3:16
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.
For the Lord God does nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets.

Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
Then the Lord put out his hand and touched my mouth. And the Lord said to me, “Behold, I have put my words in your mouth.”
“You brood of vipers! How can you speak good, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.”
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent.
There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
A wicked messenger falls into trouble, but a faithful envoy brings healing.
The tongue of the wise commends knowledge, but the mouths of fools pour out folly.
The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer, but the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things.
The heart of the wise makes his speech judicious and adds persuasiveness to his lips.
If one gives an answer before he hears, it is his folly and shame.
The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him.
A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.
A fool gives full vent to his spirit, but a wise man quietly holds it back.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
