James 3 (KJV)

3 Behold, we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.
4 Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm (wheel), whithersoever the governor listeth.
5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity (wickedness): so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
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 (the quality or state of being similar to something.) of God.
10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

13 Who is a wise man and endued (endow or provide with a quality or ability.) with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.

17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated (To make an earnest request of), full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality (favoritism), and without hypocrisy.


18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

Only peacemakers will get to Heaven ~ Karmen
