Jam 3:1 My brothers do not be many teachers, knowing that we will receive greater judgment.
Jam 3:2 For we all stumble in many ways. If any one does not stumble in word, this one is a mature man, able also to bridle the whole body.
Jam 3:3 Behold, we put bits in the mouths of the horses, for them to obey us; and we turn about their whole body.
Jam 3:4 Behold, the ships also, being so great, and being driven by violent winds, they are directed by a very small rudder, where the impulse of the one steering purposes.
Jam 3:5 So also the tongue is a little member, and boasts great things. Behold, how little a fire kindles how large a forest!
Jam 3:6 And the tongue is a fire, the world of iniquity. So the tongue is set among our members, spotting all the body, and inflaming the course of nature, and being inflamed by Hell.
Jam 3:7 For every species of beasts, both indeed of birds, of creeping things, and of sea animals, is tamed, and has been tamed by the human species;
Jam 3:8 but no one of men is able to tame the tongue; it is an unrestrainable evil, full of death-dealing poison.
Jam 3:9 By this we bless God and the Father; and by this we curse men having come into being according to the image of God. Gen. 1:26
Jam 3:10 Out of the same mouth comes forth blessing and cursing. My brothers, it is not fitting for these things to be so.
Jam 3:11 Does the fountain out of the same hole send forth the sweet and the bitter?
Jam 3:12 My brothers, a fig tree is not able to produce olives, or a vine figs. So neither can a fountain produce both salt and sweet water.
Jam 3:13 Who is wise and knowing among you? Let him show his works by his good behavior, in meekness of wisdom.
Jam 3:14 But if you have bitter jealousy and contention in your heart, do not boast and lie against the truth.
Jam 3:15 This is not the wisdom coming down from above, but is earthly, beastly, devilish.
Jam 3:16 For where jealousy and contention are, there is confusion and every foul deed.
Jam 3:17 But the wisdom from above is firstly truly pure, then peaceable, forbearing, yielding, full of mercy and of good fruits, not partial and not pretended.
Jam 3:18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace for the ones making peace.
