We are not rashly or arrogantly to reprove others:
James 3:1 My brethren be not euery man a mayster, remembrynge howe that we shal receyue the more damnacyon: James 3:2 for in many thinges we synne all. Yf a man synne not in worde, the same is a perfect man and able to tame al the bodye. James 3:3 Beholde we put bittes into the horsses mouthes that they shoulde obeye vs, and we turne aboute all the body. James 3:4 Behold also the shyppes, which though they be so greate and are dryuen of fyers wyndes, yet are they turned aboute wyth a verye smale helme, whether soeuer the vyolence of the gouerner wyll
but rather to bridle the tongue, a little member, but a powerful instrument of much good, and great harm.
James 3:5 euen so the tonge is a lyttell member, and boasteth greate thinges. Beholde howe greate a thynge a lyttell fyre kyndleth, James 3:6 and the tonge is fyre, and a worlde of wickednes. So is the tong set among our members, that it defyleth the whole body and setteth a fyre all that we haue of nature, & is it selfe set a fyre euen of hell. James 3:7 All the natures of beastes, and of byrdes, and of serpentes, and thynges of the sea, are meked and tamed of the nature of man. James 3:8 But the tonge can no man tame. It is an vnrulye euyll ful of deadly poyson. James 3:9 Therewyth blesse we God the father, and therewyth cursse wemen which are made after the similitude of God. James 3:10 Out of one mouth proceadeth blessynge and curssynge. My brethren these thynges ought not so to be. James 3:11 Doth a fountayne sende forth at one place swete water & bitter also? James 3:12 Can the fygge tree, my Brethren, beare olyue beryes: other a vyne beare fygges?
They who be truly wise be mild, and peaceable, without envying, and strife.
James 3:13 So can no fountayne geue both salte water & freshe also. If any man be wyse and endued wyth learnynge amonge you, let hym shewe the workes of hys good conuersacyon in mekenes that is coupled with wysdome. James 3:14 But, yf ye haue bitter enuyinge and strife in youre hertes, reioyce not: neyther be lyars agaynste the trueth. James 3:15 Thys wysedome descendeth not from aboue: but is earthye, & naturall, and deuelyshe: James 3:16 For where enuiynge and stryfe is there is vnstablenes and all maner of euyll workes. James 3:17 But the wysedome that is from aboue, is fyrste pure, then peasable, gentle, and easye to be entreated, full of mercye & good frutes, wythoute iudgynge, and wythout simulacyon: James 3:18 yea, & the frute of ryghtuousnes is sowen in peace, of them that maintayne peace.
