James 3

YLT 1 Many teachers become not, my brethren, having known that greater judgment we shall receive, NIV 1 Not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly. YLT 2 for we all make many stumbles; if any one in word doth not stumble, this one [is] a perfect man, able to bridle also the whole body; NIV 2 We all stumble in many ways. If anyone is never at fault in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to keep his whole body in check. YLT 3 lo, the bits we put into the mouths of the horses for their obeying us, and their whole body we turn about; NIV 3 When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. YLT 4 lo, also the ships, being so great, and by fierce winds being driven, are led about by a very small helm, whithersoever the impulse of the helmsman doth counsel, NIV 4 Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. YLT 5 so also the tongue is a little member, and doth boast greatly; lo, a little fire how much wood it doth kindle! NIV 5 Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. YLT 6 and the tongue [is] a fire, the world of the unrighteousness, so the tongue is set in our members, which is spotting our whole body, and is setting on fire the course of nature, and is set on fire by the gehenna. NIV 6 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. YLT 7 For every nature, both of beasts and of fowls, both of creeping things and things of the sea, is subdued, and hath been subdued, by the human nature, NIV 7 All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and creatures of the sea are being tamed and have been tamed by man, YLT 8 and the tongue no one of men is able to subdue, [it is] an unruly evil, full of deadly poison, NIV 8 but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. YLT 9 with it we do bless the God and Father, and with it we do curse the men made according to the similitude of God; NIV 9 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God's likeness. YLT 10 out of the same mouth doth come forth blessing and cursing; it doth not need, my brethren, these things so to happen; NIV 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be. YLT 11 doth the fountain out of the same opening pour forth the sweet and the bitter? NIV 11 Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? YLT 12 is a fig-tree able, my brethren, olives to make? or a vine figs? so no fountain salt and sweet water [is able] to make. NIV 12 My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water. YLT 13 Who [is] wise and intelligent among you? let him shew out of the good behaviour his works in meekness of wisdom, NIV 13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. YLT 14 and if bitter zeal ye have, and rivalry in your heart, glory not, nor lie against the truth; NIV 14 But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. YLT 15 this wisdom is not descending from above, but earthly, physical, demon-like, NIV 15 Such "wisdom" does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, of the devil. YLT 16 for where zeal and rivalry [are], there is insurrection and every evil matter; NIV 16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice. YLT 17 and the wisdom from above, first, indeed, is pure, then peaceable, gentle, easily entreated, full of kindness and good fruits, uncontentious, and unhypocritical: -- NIV 17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. YLT 18 and the fruit of the righteousness in peace is sown to those making peace. NIV 18 Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.
