Proverbs 21:29 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

23 He that guardeth his mouth and his tongue,

     Keepeth his soul from troubles.

Proverbs 13:3 resembles this. He guardeth his mouth who does not speak when he does better to be silent; and he guardeth his tongue who says no more than is right and fitting. The troubles comprehend both external and internal evils, hurtful incidents and (נפשׁ) צרות לבב, Psalm 25:17; Psalm 31:8, i.e., distress of conscience, self-accusation, sorrow on account of the irreparable evil which one occasions.
