whatsoever:

Job 24:14-15 The murderer rising with the light killeth the poor and needy, and in the night is as a thief. ... The eye also of the adulterer waiteth for the twilight, saying, No eye shall see me: and disguiseth [his] face.
Ecclesiastes 10:12-13 The words of a wise man's mouth [are] gracious; but the lips of a fool will swallow up himself. ... The beginning of the words of his mouth [is] foolishness: and the end of his talk [is] mischievous madness.
Ecclesiastes 10:20 Curse not the king, no not in thy thought; and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter.
Matthew 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
Jude 1:14-15 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, ... To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard [speeches] which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

proclaimed:
The houses in Judea being flat-roofed, with a balustrade round about, were used for the purpose of taking the air, sleeping, and prayer, and, it seems, for announcing things in the most public manner. So among the Turks, a crier announces the hours of public worship from the minaret or tower of the mosque.

housetops:

Matthew 10:27 What I tell you in darkness, [that] speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, [that] preach ye upon the housetops.
