3:1 My [G3450] brethren [G80] , be [G1096] not [G3361] many [G4183] masters [G1320] , knowing [G1492] that [G3754] we shall receive [G2983] the greater [G3187] condemnation [G2917] .(condemnation: or, judgment)
3:2 For [G1063] in many things [G4183] we offend [G4417] all [G537] . If any man [G1536] offend [G4417] not [G3756] in [G1722] word [G3056] , the same [G3778] [is] a perfect [G5046] man [G435] , [and] able [G1415] also [G2532] to bridle [G5468] the whole [G3650] body [G4983] .
3:3 Behold [G2400] , we put [G906] bits [G5469] in [G1519] the horses' [G2462] mouths [G4750] , that [G4314] they [G846] may obey [G3982] us [G2254] ; and [G2532] we turn about [G3329] their [G846] whole [G3650] body [G4983] .
3:4 Behold [G2400] also [G2532] the ships [G4143] , which though [they be] [G5607] so great [G5082] , and [G2532] [are] driven [G1643] of [G5259] fierce [G4642] winds [G417] , yet are they turned about [G3329] with [G5259] a very small [G1646] helm [G4079] , whithersoever [G3699] [G302] the governor [G2116] listeth [G3730] [G1014] .
3:5 Even [G2532] so [G3779] the tongue [G1100] is [G2076] a little [G3398] member [G3196] , and [G2532] boasteth great things [G3166] . Behold [G2400] , how great [G2245] a matter [G5208] a little [G3641] fire [G4442] kindleth [G381] !(a matter: or, wood)
3:6 And [G2532] the tongue [G1100] [is] a fire [G4442] , a world [G2889] of iniquity [G93] : so [G3779] is [G2525] the tongue [G1100] among [G1722] our [G2257] members [G3196] , that it defileth [G4695] the whole [G3650] body [G4983] , and [G2532] setteth on fire [G5394] the course [G5164] of nature [G1078] ; and [G2532] it is set on fire [G5394] of [G5259] hell [G1067] .(course: Gr. wheel)
3:7 For [G1063] every [G3956] kind [G5449] of beasts [G2342] , and [G5037] [G2532] of birds [G4071] , and [G5037] of serpents [G2062] , and [G2532] of things in the sea [G1724] , is tamed [G1150] , and [G2532] hath been tamed [G1150] of mankind [G5449] [G442] :(kind: Gr. nature)(mankind: Gr. nature of man)
3:8 But [G1161] the tongue [G1100] can [G1410] no [G3762] man [G444] tame [G1150] ; [it is] an unruly [G183] evil [G2556] , full [G3324] of deadly [G2287] poison [G2447] .
3:9 Therewith [G1722] [G846] bless we [G2127] God [G2316] , even [G2532] the Father [G3962] ; and [G2532] therewith [G1722] [G846] curse we [G2672] men [G444] , which [G3588] are made [G1096] after [G2596] the similitude [G3669] of God [G2316] .
3:10 Out of [G1537] the same [G846] mouth [G4750] proceedeth [G1831] blessing [G2129] and [G2532] cursing [G2671] . My [G3450] brethren [G80] , these things [G5023] ought [G5534] not [G3756] so [G3779] to be [G1096] .
3:11 Doth [G3385] a fountain [G4077] send forth [G1032] at [G1537] the same [G846] place [G3692] sweet [G1099] [water] and [G2532] bitter [G4089] ?(place: or, hole)
3:12 Can [G3361] [G1410] the fig tree [G4808] , my [G3450] brethren [G80] , bear [G4160] olive berries [G1636] ? either [G2228] a vine [G288] , figs [G4810] ? so [G3779] [can] no [G3762] fountain [G4077] both yield [G4160] salt [G252] water [G5204] and [G2532] fresh [G1099] .
3:13 Who [G5101] [is] a wise man [G4680] and [G2532] endued with knowledge [G1990] among [G1722] you [G5213] ? let him shew [G1166] out of [G1537] a good [G2570] conversation [G391] his [G846] works [G2041] with [G1722] meekness [G4240] of wisdom [G4678] .
3:14 But [G1161] if [G1487] ye have [G2192] bitter [G4089] envying [G2205] and [G2532] strife [G2052] in [G1722] your [G5216] hearts [G2588] , glory [G2620] not [G3361] , and [G2532] lie not [G5574] against [G2596] the truth [G225] .
3:15 This [G3778] wisdom [G4678] descendeth [G2076] [G2718] not [G3756] from above [G509] , but [G235] [is] earthly [G1919] , sensual [G5591] , devilish [G1141] .(sensual: or, natural)
3:16 For [G1063] where [G3699] envying [G2205] and [G2532] strife [G2052] [is], there [G1563] [is] confusion [G181] and [G2532] every [G3956] evil [G5337] work [G4229] .(confusion: Gr. tumult or unquietness)
3:17 But [G1161] the wisdom [G4678] that is from above [G509] is [G2076] first [G4412] pure [G3303] [G53] , then [G1899] peaceable [G1516] , gentle [G1933] , [and] easy to be intreated [G2138] , full [G3324] of mercy [G1656] and [G2532] good [G18] fruits [G2590] , without partiality [G87] , and [G2532] without hypocrisy [G505] .(partiality: or, wrangling)
3:18 And [G1161] the fruit [G2590] of righteousness [G1343] is sown [G4687] in [G1722] peace [G1515] of them that make [G4160] peace [G1515] .
