There are a lot of places:

1. but you can start with Mathew 12:33-37

it says among other things that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks and verse 36 and 37 gives serious warning that we will account for every idle word we speak on the day of judgement. Then verse 37 summarizes it all; for by our words we will be justified and by our words we will be condemned.

Is cussing a sin?

yes! read ephesians 4:29 The Bible doesnt specify any particular word, so if you use a "swear word" in a good meaning, then it's okay. Right? Like, "You are so f**king funny!" Or something to that effect. Cuss words are only as bad as you mean them to be.

What are all the things the Bible tell us not to do?

The Ten Commandments are ten things we are commanded to do. These are located in Exodus 20:1-17. v3: You shall have no other gods before me v4: You shall not make for yourself an idol v7: You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain (Cuss, curse, etc.) v8: Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy v12:honor your father and mother v13:You shall not murder v14:You shall not commit adultery (Cheat on spouse/lust) v15:You shall not steal v16:You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor (lie) v17:You shall not covet (want what others have) If you read some of Exodus, you'll find more things that the Bible tells us not to do, as well as the consequences. For example: Anyone who strikes a man and kills him shall surely be put to death. (Exodus 21:12) Some consequences might have changed, since the book was written around 1440 b.c. I'll let you read it for yourself if you choose. -Kiley

How did curse words come about?

Swearing originated from the natural human desire to exclaim if things go wrong or hurt. Derogatory descriptions, insults, and exclamations were included along the way, to verbally express upsetting emotions, especially anger. Sometimes these were aimed at other individuals or groups, or to no one in particular. "Dirty" or offensive words have a variety of sources, from names for fecal matter, to sexual or anatomical descriptions, to illicit or unsavory behavior. Some sources are apocryphal and many are "backronyms" (explanations that occur well after the word is in common use). Example : s hit Backronym : For the transport of manure by ship, it was dried first. However, it could regain moisture from leaks and give off methane gas. The gas would collect in the hold and sometimes explode. To avoid this manure shipments would be labeled "Store High In Transit". Language is a magical thing - it allows us to know what another person is thinking. (No animal has language, or anything like it). Sometimes the words we say even make things happen in the real world. When a Justice of the Peace says 'I now pronounce you man and wife' his words end your single status. (This is called Deictic language). Because language is so powerful, people are naturally afraid of certain words. Usually these words will be about processes that people fear anyway (again because they are powerful). People fear sex, because it can mess your life up. They fear excretion, because it can contaminate you. And they fear God, because most gods in history have been downright mean. So sex, excretion and God cover most cuss words. Technically, "curse words" are words that put a curse on you. Even non-superstitious people don't like being put under a curse. The impact of hurtful words can be as painful as being physically struck. This has had a civilizing effect, allowing angry people to 'fight' each other with words instead of fists. Therefore, we should be glad there is cursing, swearing and dirty words available to release strong emotions without physical damage to people or property!
