Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:1 - Many teachers become not, my brethren, having known that greater judgment we shall receive,

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:2 - for we all make many stumbles; if any one in word doth not stumble, this one is a perfect man, able to bridle also the whole body;

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:3 - lo, the bits we put into the mouths of the horses for their obeying us, and their whole body we turn about;

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:4 - lo, also the ships, being so great, and by fierce winds being driven, are led about by a very small helm, whithersoever the impulse of the helmsman doth counsel,

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:5 - so also the tongue is a little member, and doth boast greatly; lo, a little fire how much wood it doth kindle!

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:6 - and the tongue is a fire, the world of the unrighteousness, so the tongue is set in our members, which is spotting our whole body, and is setting on fire the course of nature, and is set on fire by the gehenna.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:7 - For every nature, both of beasts and of fowls, both of creeping things and things of the sea, is subdued, and hath been subdued, by the human nature,

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:8 - and the tongue no one of men is able to subdue, it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison,

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:9 - with it we do bless the God and Father, and with it we do curse the men made according to the similitude of God;

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:10 - out of the same mouth doth come forth blessing and cursing; it doth not need, my brethren, these things so to happen;

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:11 - doth the fountain out of the same opening pour forth the sweet and the bitter?

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:12 - is a fig-tree able, my brethren, olives to make? or a vine figs? so no fountain salt and sweet water is able to make.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:13 - Who is wise and intelligent among you? let him shew out of the good behaviour his works in meekness of wisdom,

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:14 - and if bitter zeal ye have, and rivalry in your heart, glory not, nor lie against the truth;

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:15 - this wisdom is not descending from above, but earthly, physical, demon-like,

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:16 - for where zeal and rivalry are, there is insurrection and every evil matter;

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:17 - and the wisdom from above, first, indeed, is pure, then peaceable, gentle, easily entreated, full of kindness and good fruits, uncontentious, and unhypocritical: --

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 3:18 - and the fruit of the righteousness in peace is sown to those making peace.
