James 3:10 Meaning and Commentary

James 3:10

Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing
Which is not only a contradiction, but unnatural, as well as wicked and sinful:

my brethren, these things ought not so to be:
in any, and much less in professors of religion: such things are unbecoming men, are a scandal upon human nature, and exceeding unworthy of the Christian name; see ( Psalms 50:16 Psalms 50:19 Psalms 50:20 ) .

James 3:10 In-Context

8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?
12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
