Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body.
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.
Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.
