Sword of the Word

It is said in the New Testament that the word of God is a double edged sword. As an idiom it means the power of the word over brute might.

Example: Mahatma Gandhi the apostle of non violence used the sword of the word in his protest to free Indian from English colonial rule.

Journalists embody the sword of the word when they undertake risk to cover news.
