The Dubno Maggid says that people often make light of the sin of loshon hora. They may say to themselves "What are mere words? I am not harming anyone by just talking?" Says the Maggid the Torah requires the Metzora be brought to the Kohen in order for him to witness the true power of speech, and what speech is capable of doing. With one word, the Kohen defines the status of Metzora, making him either pure or impure - This is the Power of Speech!
