On the other hand, the phrase "the tongue of the wise brings healing" suggests that wise and kind words have the power to bring comfort and resolution to conflicts.

This implies that death is an inevitable and constant part of life, and it is something that humans can never fully comprehend or be satisfied with. The use of both lowercase "death" and uppercase "Death" may indicate that the concept of death applies to all living beings, while the capitalized "Death" could refer to a more abstract or personified form of death.
