1Cor.14:22 22ὥστε αἱ γλῶσσαι εἰς σημεῖόν εἰσιν, οὐ τοῖς πιστεύουσιν, ἀλλὰ τοῖς ἀπίστοις. δέ, προφητεία, οὐ τοῖς ἀπίστοις, ἀλλὰ τοῖς πιστεύουσιν. 22 So you see that speaking in {NEQ} tongues is {NEQ} a sign , not for {NEQ} believers , but for {NEQ} unbelievers . {NEQ} Prophecy , however , {NEQ} is for the benefit of believers , not {NEQ} unbelievers .
1Cor.14:23 23ἐάν, οὖν, συνέλθῃ ἐκκλησία ὅλη ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ καὶ πάντες λαλῶσιν γλώσσαις, εἰσέλθωσιν δὲ ἰδιῶται ἄπιστοι, οὐκ ἐροῦσιν ὅτι μαίνεσθε; 23 Even so , if unbelievers or people who don’t understand these things come into {NEQ} your church meeting and hear everyone speaking in an unknown language , {NEQ} they will think {NEQ} you are crazy .
1Cor.14:26 26τί οὖν, ἐστίν, ἀδελφοί; ὅταν συνέρχησθε, ἕκαστος ψαλμὸν ἔχει, διδαχὴν ἔχει, ἀποκάλυψιν ἔχει, γλῶσσαν ἔχει, ἑρμηνείαν ἔχει· πάντα πρὸς οἰκοδομὴν γινέσθω. 26 Well , my brothers and sisters , let’s summarize .

1Cor.14:39 39ὥστε, ἀδελφοί μου, ζηλοῦτε τὸ προφητεύειν καὶ τὸ λαλεῖν μὴ κωλύετε γλώσσαις. 39 So , my dear brothers and sisters , be eager {NEQ} to prophesy , and don’t forbid {NEQ} speaking in tongues .
Phil.2:11 11καὶ πᾶσα γλῶσσα ἐξομολογήσηται ὅτι κύριος Ἰησοῦς Χριστός, εἰς δόξαν θεοῦ πατρός. 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord , to the glory of God the Father .

Jas.3:6 6καὶ γλῶσσα πῦρ· κόσμος τῆς ἀδικίας γλῶσσα καθίσταται ἐν τοῖς μέλεσιν ἡμῶν, σπιλοῦσα ὅλον τὸ σῶμα· καὶ φλογίζουσα τὸν τροχὸν τῆς γενέσεως καὶ φλογιζομένη ὑπὸ τῆς γεέννης. 6 And the tongue is a flame of fire . It is {RPT} {RPT} {RPT} a whole world of {NEQ} wickedness {RPT} {RPT} , {NEQ} corrupting your entire {NEQ} body . {NEQ} It can set your whole life on fire , for it is set on fire by {NEQ} hell itself .  * 
Jas.3:8 8τὴν δὲ γλῶσσαν οὐδεὶς δαμάσαι δύναται ἀνθρώπων· ἀκατάστατον κακόν, μεστὴ ἰοῦ θανατηφόρου. 8 but no one can tame the tongue . It is restless and evil , full of deadly poison .
1Pet.3:10 10ὁ, γάρ, Θέλων ζωὴν ἀγαπᾶν καὶ ἰδεῖν ἡμέρας ἀγαθάς, παυσάτω τὴν γλῶσσαν ἀπὸ κακοῦ, καὶ χείλη τοῦ μὴ λαλῆσαι δόλον. 10 For the Scriptures say , If you want to enjoy life and see many happy days , keep your tongue from speaking evil and your lips from telling lies .
1Jn.3:18 18τεκνία, μὴ ἀγαπῶμεν λόγῳ μηδὲ τῇ γλώσσῃ· ἀλλὰ ἐν ἔργῳ καὶ ἀληθείᾳ. 18 Dear children , let’s not merely say that we love each other ; {NEQ} let us show the truth {NEQ} by our actions .
Rev.5:9 9καὶ ᾄδουσιν ᾠδὴν καινὴν λέγοντες· ̓Άξιος εἶ λαβεῖν τὸ βιβλίον καὶ ἀνοῖξαι τὰς σφραγῖδας αὐτοῦ. ὅτι ἐσφάγης, καὶ ἠγόρασας τῷ θεῷ ἐν τῷ αἵματί σου ἐκ πάσης φυλῆς καὶ γλώσσης καὶ λαοῦ καὶ ἔθνους. 9 And they sang a new song with these words : You are worthy to take the scroll and break its seals and open it . For you were slaughtered , and your {NEQ} blood has ransomed people {NEQ} for God from every tribe and language and people and nation .
Rev.7:9 9μετὰ ταῦτα εἶδον καὶ ἰδοὺ ὄχλος πολύς, ὃν ἀριθμῆσαι αὐτὸν οὐδεὶς ἐδύνατο, ἐκ παντὸς ἔθνους καὶ φυλῶν καὶ λαῶν καὶ γλωσσῶν, ἑστῶτες ἐνώπιον τοῦ θρόνου καὶ ἐνώπιον τοῦ ἀρνίου· περιβεβλημένους στολὰς λευκάς καὶ φοίνικες ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτῶν. 9 After this I saw {NEQ} {RPT} a vast crowd , {RPT} too great to count {RPT} , from every nation and tribe and people and language , standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb . They were clothed in white robes and held palm branches in their {NEQ} hands .

No one will be allowed to bury {NEQ} them .

Rev.16:10 10καὶ πέμπτος ἐξέχεεν τὴν φιάλην αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὸν θρόνον τοῦ θηρίου, καὶ ἐγένετο βασιλεία αὐτοῦ ἐσκοτωμένη· καὶ ἐμασῶντο τὰς γλώσσας αὐτῶν ἐκ τοῦ πόνου, 10 Then the fifth angel poured out {NEQ} his bowl on the throne of the beast , and his {NEQ} kingdom was plunged into darkness . {NEQ} His subjects ground their teeth in anguish ,
Rev.17:15 15καὶ λέγει μοι, Τὰ ὕδατα εἶδες οὗ πόρνη κάθηται λαοὶ καὶ ὄχλοι εἰσὶν καὶ ἔθνη καὶ γλῶσσαι. 15 Then the angel said to me , The waters {RPT} {NEQ} where the prostitute is ruling represent masses of people {NEQ} of every nation and language .
