The Talebearer - Poem by Richard Merrell

The talebearer reveals s secret
About brethren in the Lord
But he that is of a faithful spirit
Pays heed unto 'God's Word'

Which tells, 'he that covers a transgression,
seeks love and makes amends,
but he that repeats a matter
seperates the closest of friends.'

The words of the talebearer
Are as wounds unto the soul;
The tongue of the whisperer is evil
Their spirit is not whole.

But the talebearer is defeated
By the one who trusts the Lord;
In a pavilion from the strife of tongues
God will hide him, by the Spirit's Sword!

Proverbs 11: 13; 17: 9; 18: 8; Psalm 31: 19,20
