(Jam 3:1) My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.
(Jam 3:2) For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same {is} a perfect man, {and} able also to bridle the whole body.
(Jam 3:3) Behold, we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.
(Jam 3:4) Behold also the ships, which though {they be} so great, and {are} driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.
(Jam 3:5) Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
(Jam 3:6) And the tongue {is} a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
(Jam 3:7) For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
(Jam 3:8) But the tongue can no man tame; {it is} an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
(Jam 3:9) Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
(Jam 3:10) Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
(Jam 3:11) Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet {water} and bitter?
(Jam 3:12) Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so {can} no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
(Jam 3:13) Who {is} a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
(Jam 3:14) But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
(Jam 3:15) This wisdom descendeth not from above, but {is} earthly, sensual, devilish.
(Jam 3:16) For where envying and strife {is}, there {is} confusion and every evil work.
(Jam 3:17) But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, {and} easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
(Jam 3:18) And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
