For every nature of animals, and of birds, and reptiles of the sea, and of the dry land, have been subjected to the human nature;
but the tongue no one can subdue; this is an evil not ordered, (and) full of the poison of death.
9 Wherefore also Aloha greatly exalted him, and gave him a name that is more excellent than all names,
10 that at the name of Jeshu every knee should kneel, of those in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth;
11 and that every tongue should confess that Jeshu the Meshiha is the Lord, to the glory of Aloha his Father.
Though in every tongue of men and of angels I spoke, and had not love, I should be as brass which soundeth, or a cymbal which giveth voice.
For (in) many we all offend. Every one who in word offendeth not, this is a perfect man, who is able to make subject also all his body.
But I tell you, that for every useless word which the sons of men shall speak, they must give the answer for it in the day of judgment.
For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
9 For by it we bless the Lord and the Father, and by it we curse men who in the likeness of Aloha were made;
10 and from the same mouth go forth curses and blessings. My brethren, it is not fit that these should so be done.
11 Can it be that one fountain shall send forth waters sweet and bitter?
12 Or can the fig-tree, my brethren, make olives, or the vines figs? thus also salt waters cannot be made sweet.
And if a man thinketh that he serveth Aloha, and holdeth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, of this man his service is vain.
3 For, behold, bridles into the mouth of horses we throw that we may make them submissive to us, and their whole body we turn.
4 Also the mighty ships, while the furious winds drive them, by a little wood are turned about to the region which the will of him who guideth doth contemplate.
5 So also the tongue is a small member, and uplifteth itself. A little fire also burneth many forests;
6 and the tongue is a fire, a world of sin, like a forest is the tongue itself among our members; it defileth all of our body, and burneth the course of our generations which run (forward) as a wheel, and kindleth also itself with fire.
