James 3

3:1 My brethren, bee not many masters, knowing that we shall receiue the greater condemnation. 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. 3:3 Behold, we put bittes in the horses mouthes, that they may obey vs, and we turne about their whole body. 3:4 Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driuen of fierce windes, yet are they turned about with a very small helme, whithersoeuer the gouernour listeth. 3:5 Euen so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things: behold, how great a matter a litle fire kindleth. 3:6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquitie: so is the tongue amongst our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature, and it is set on fire of hell. 3:7 For euery kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind. 3:8 But the tongue can no man tame, it is an vnruly euill, ful of deadly poyson. 3:9 Therewith blesse wee God, euen the Father: and therewith curse wee men, which 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 Doeth a fountaine send foorth at the same place sweet water and bitter 3:12 Can ye figtree, my brethren, beare oliue berries either a vine, figs so can no fountaine both yeeld salt water & fresh. 3:13 Who is a wise man and indued with knowledge amongst you let him shew out of a good conuersation his workes with meekenes of wisedome. 3:14 But if ye haue bitter enuying and strife in your hearts glory not, and lie not against the trueth. 3:15 This wisedome descendeth not from aboue, but is earthly, sensuall, deuilish. 3:16 For where enuying and strife is, there is confusion, and euery euill worke. 3:17 But the wisedome that is from aboue, is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easie to be intreated, full of mercy, and good fruits, without partialitie, and without hypocrisie. 3:18 And the fruit of righteousnesse is sowen in peace, of them that make peace.
