James 3:1-12 [ Verse 6 in Original: Greek ]
             [ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
1 Let R103 not many of you become teachers, my R104 brethren, knowing that as such we will incur a stricter F50 judgment. 2 For we all stumble R105 in many ways. If R106 anyone does not stumble in what F51 he says, he is a perfect R107 man, able to bridle R108 the whole body as well. 3 Now if R109 we put the bits into the horses' mouths so that they will obey us, we direct their entire body as well. 4 Look at the ships also, though they are so great and are driven by strong winds, are still directed by a very small rudder wherever the inclination of the pilot desires. 5 So also the tongue is a small part of the body, and yet it boasts R110 of great things. See R111 how great a forest is set aflame by such a small fire! 6 And the R112 tongue is a fire, the very world of iniquity; the tongue is set among our members as that which defiles R113 the entire body, and sets on fire the course of our life, F52 and is set on fire by hell. R114 F53 7 For every species F54 of beasts and birds, of reptiles and creatures of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by the human race. F54 8 But no one can tame the tongue; it is a restless evil and full of deadly R115 poison. 9 With it we bless our R116 Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who R117 have been made in the likeness of God; 10 from the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be this way. 11 Does a fountain send out from the same opening both fresh F55 and bitter water? 12 Can R118 a fig tree, my brethren, produce olives, or a vine produce figs? Nor can salt water produce fresh. F56
