a: Tongue ~
b: poisonous snake

What:

"Sometimes the untamed tongue is like a poisonous snake that is loaded with venom of hate, half truths and gossip. It has the power to destroy lives. Matthew 12:34 Jesus says: "O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh." When the heart is filled with hatred, bitterness, anger and strife, Satan will fire up the tongue to spew it all over other people."
