Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
10 From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brethren, this ought not to be so. 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be.
11 Does a spring pour forth from the same opening fresh water and brackish? 11 Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring?
12 Can a fig tree, my brethren, yield olives, or a grapevine figs? No more can salt water yield fresh. 12 My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.
