Ecclesiastes 5:3 KJV “For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool’s voice is known by multitude of words.”
God says that a fool is recognized by his use of many words. Have you ever been around people who talk so much you just wish they would shut up? You might as well stop wishing because they’re not gonna be quiet, hah hah hah. Then there’s the type that are smooth talkers. They charm and flatter you with their lips. The best we can do is pray for patience in dealing with these folks and pray for them. Also we must avoid becoming intertwined with folks God calls fools. That’s right, God’s word says not to be yoked with such persons:
Proverbs 20:19 KJV “He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore MEDDLE NOT with him that flattereth with his lips.”
Proverbs 29:5 KJV “A man that flattereth his neighbour SPREADETH A NET for his feet.”
One of the benefits of having godly wisdom is all you have to do is listen when people speak and they will tell you who they are.
Ecclesiastes 10:14 KJV “A fool also is full of words: a man cannot tell what shall be; and what shall be after him, who can tell him?”
Yet the fool babbles like he/she knows everything.
Proverbs 10:19 MEV “In the multitude of words sin is not lacking, but he who restrains his lips is wise.”
When a person talks too much God says sin is present, and there is no lack of it. Be very careful with those who love to flap their jaws. Remember, when folks talk they are telling you who they are. Accept what you hear, accept the truth. Even the smoothest tongue cannot remain hidden:
Luke 6:45 KJV “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.”
