I have no respect for justice
I maim without killing
I break hearts and ruin lives
I humiliate with delight
I am cunning and malicious and gather strength with age
The more I am quoted... the more I am believed
The words of a gossip are like choice morsels;
they go down to a man's inmost parts.
My victims are helpess
They cannot protect themselves against me
Because I have no name or face
To track me down is impossible
The harder you try, the more elusive I become
I am nobody's friend
Once I tarnish a reputation
A reputation is never the same
I pit people against each other
For the purpose of maintaining control over others
I shrewdly imply that I know more than I actually tell
A perverse man stirs up dissension,
and a gossip separates close friends.
I intentionally break the promise of keeping scared
A shared confidential confession or personal weakness
There are six things the LORD hates,
Seven that are detestable to him:
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
A heart that devises wicked sche mes,
Feet that are quick to rush into evil,
A false witness who pours out lies
And a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.
I topple governments and wreck marriages
I make innocent people cry on their pillows
Even my name hisses
I am called Gossip
I make headlines, headaches...
... and heartaches
Whoever slanders his neighbor in secret,
him will I put to silence;
whoever has haughty eyes and a proud heart,
him will I not endure.
Without wood a fire goes out;
without gossip a quarrel dies down.
