The Bible says to not cuss

The Bible says to not cuss. What comes out of our mouths is a reflection of what is inside us. We should take every thought captive for the obedience of Christ, destroying strong-holds in our lives which prevent us from being who God has called us to be.

Ephesians 4:29

29 Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.

James 3:10

 10 from the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be this way.

1 Peter 3:9-12

 9 not returning evil for evil or insult for insult, but giving a blessing instead; for you were called for the very purpose that you might inherit a blessing. 10 For
“The one who desires life, to love and see good days,
Must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit.
11 “He must turn away from evil and do good;
He must seek peace and pursue it.
12 “For the eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous,
And His ears attend to their prayer,
But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”

Luke 6:45

45 The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart.

2 Corinthians 10:5

 5 We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,

Colossians 3:8

But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth.

So we are to not use foul language, but more than that, we are to even stop ourselves from thinking bad language.
