Chapter 3 :: James

James 3:1  -  My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.

James 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.

James 3:3  -  Behold, we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.

James 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.

James 3:5  -  Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!

James 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.

James 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:

James 3:8  -  But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.

James 3:9  -  Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.

James 3:10  -  Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

James 3:11  -  Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?

James 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.

James 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.

James 3:14  -  But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.

James 3:15  -  This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

James 3:16  -  For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

James 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.

James 3:18  -  And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
