Slander

but he who is trustworthy in spirit keeps a thing covered.

and his speech is like a scorching fire.

therefore do not associate with a simple babbler.

Argue your case with your neighbor himself,
and do not reveal another's secret,
10 lest he who hears you bring shame upon you,
and your ill repute have no end.

Proverbs 25:23

23 The north wind brings forth rain,
and a backbiting tongue, angry looks.

Proverbs 26:20

20 For lack of wood the fire goes out,
and where there is no whisperer, quarreling ceases.

Proverbs 26:22-23

22 The words of a whisperer are like delicious morsels;
they go down into the inner parts of the body.
23 Like the glaze covering an earthen vessel
are fervent lips with an evil heart.
