James 3:1-3 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Controlling the Tongue

Not many should become teachers, my brothers, knowing that we will receive a stricter judgment, for we all stumble in many ways. If anyone does not stumble in what he says,[a] he is a mature man who is also able to control his whole body.[b]

Now when we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we also guide the whole animal.[c]
