Chapter 7: On Humility (Cont.)

The ninth degree of humility 
is that a monk restrain his tongue and keep silence,
 
not speaking until he is questioned.
 
For the Scripture shows
 
that “in much speaking there is no escape from sin” (Prov. 10:19)
and that “the talkative man is not stable on the earth” (Ps. 139[140]:12).
