James 3


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