New Defender's Study Bible Notes

4:6 speech. “Speech” here is the Greek logos, often translated “word.” In addition to being “gracious” and tasteful (i.e., “seasoned with salt”), the speech of the Christian should be “sound” (Titus 2:8), “edifying” (Ephesians 4:29), meaningful (Matthew 12:36), “quiet” (I Thessalonians 4:11), trustworthy (Colossians 3:9) and clean (Colossians 3:8).

4:6 with grace. If we have “grace in [our] hearts” (Colossians 3:16), we can exhibit grace in our speech.
