Government of the Tongue



Author:Allestree, Richard (1619-1681)
Description:Allestree meant The Government of the Tongue to serve as a partner to his treatise on biblical interpretation, The Lively Oracles Given to Us. While the latter deals with the proper use and application of the received Word, The Government of the Tongue deals with that of the spoken word. He draws primarily from the book of Proverbs and the general letter of James. First, he discusses why God gifted humankind with speech, then how humankind has since abused it. Serving for many years as provost of a boys’ boarding school, Allestree writes practically and instructively.
