KJV He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips.

I Timothy 3:11:

KJV Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.
BBE Women are to be serious in behaviour, saying no evil of others, controlling themselves, true in all things.
GW Their wives must also be of good character. They must not be gossips, but they must control their tempers and be trustworthy in every way.

I Timothy 5:13:

KJV And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.
BBE And they get into the way of doing no work, going about from house to house; and not only doing no work, but talking foolishly, being over-interested in the business of others, saying things which they have no right to say.
GW At the same time, they learn to go around from house to house since they have nothing else to do. Not only this, but they also gossip and get involved in other people's business, saying things they shouldn't say.
AMP Moreover, as they go about from house to house, they learn to be idlers, and not only idlers, but gossips and busybodies, saying what they should not say {and} talking of things they should not mention.

 
Titus 2:3:

KJV The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
BBE That old women are to be self-respecting in behaviour, not saying evil of others, not given to taking much wine, teachers of that which is good,
GW Tell older women to live their lives in a way that shows they are dedicated to God. Tell them not to be gossips or addicted to alcohol, but to be examples of virtue.
AMP Bid the older women similarly to be reverent {and} devout in their deportment as becomes those engaged in sacred service, not slanderers or slaves to drink. They are to give good counsel {and} be teachers of what is right {and} noble,

Looking at these verses we see that we should never gossip. If we gossip we will never enter into God's authority.
