    3:1 Let not many of you be teachers, my brothers, knowing that we will receive heavier judgment.

    3:2 For in many things we all stumble. If anyone doesn`t stumble in word, the same is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body also.

    3:3 Indeed, we put bits into the horses` mouths so that they may obey us, and we turn about their whole body.

    3:4 Behold, the ships also, though they are so big and are driven by fierce winds, are yet turned about by a very small rudder, wherever the pilot desires.

    3:5 So the tongue is also a little member, and boasts great things. Behold, how much wood is kindled by how small a fire!

    3:6 And the tongue is a fire. The world of iniquity among our members is the tongue, which defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature, and is set on fire by Gehenna.

    3:7 For every kind of animal, bird, creeping thing, and thing in the sea, is tamed, and has been tamed by mankind.

    3:8 But nobody can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.

    3:9 With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who are made in the image of God.

    3:10 Out of the same mouth comes forth blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so.

    3:11 Does a spring send forth from the same opening fresh and bitter water?

    3:12 Can a fig tree, my brothers, yield olives, or a vine figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh water.

    3:13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show his deeds done in gentleness of wisdom by his good life.

    3:14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, don`t boast and don`t lie against the truth.

    3:15 This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, sensual, and demonic.

    3:16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition are, there is confusion and every evil deed.

    3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceful, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

    3:18 Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.
