Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:1 - Be not many of you teachers, my brethren, knowing that we shall receive heavier judgment.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:2 - For in many things we all stumble. If any stumbleth not in word, the same is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body also.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:3 - Now if we put the horses’ bridles into their mouths that they may obey us, we turn about their whole body also.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:4 - Behold, the ships also, though they are so great and are driven by rough winds, are yet turned about by a very small rudder, whither the impulse of the steersman willeth.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:5 - So the tongue also is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how much wood is kindled by how small a fire!
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:6 - And the tongue is a fire: the world of iniquity among our members is the tongue, which defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the wheel of nature, and is set on fire by hell.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:7 - For every kind of beasts and birds, of creeping things and things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed by mankind:
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:8 - but the tongue can no man tame; it is a restless evil, it is full of deadly poison.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:9 - Therewith bless we the Lord and Father; and therewith curse we men, who are made after the likeness of God:
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:10 - out of the same mouth cometh forth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:11 - Doth the fountain send forth from the same opening sweet water and bitter?
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:12 - can a fig tree, my brethren, yield olives, or a vine figs? neither can salt water yield sweet.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:13 - Who is wise and understanding among you? let him show by his good life his works in meekness of wisdom.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:14 - But if ye have bitter jealousy and faction in your heart, glory not and lie not against the truth.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:15 - This wisdom is not a wisdom that cometh down from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:16 - For where jealousy and faction are, there is confusion and every vile deed.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:17 - But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without variance, without hypocrisy.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:18 - And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace for them that make peace.
