Listen, or thy tongue will keep thee deaf

"Listen, or thy tongue will keep thee deaf."
- American Indian Proverb

"Everyone should be quick to listen and slow to speak,
and slow to become angry."
James 1:9

"He who answers before listening -
that is his folly and shame."
Proverbs 18:14

Lord, learn me to listen first
and make that I take up the words in me and consider
before responding.
Make that I can always give an apprehensive ear to listen
and that I can give meaningful answers.

Dutch version / Nederlandse versie > Luister, of uw tong houdt u doof
