Bible: James 3:8-12
3:8 But no human being can subdue the tongue; it is a restless 1 evil, full of deadly poison. 3:9 With it we bless the Lord 2 and Father, and with it we curse people 3 made in God’s image. 3:10 From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. These things should not be so, my brothers and sisters. 4 3:11 A spring does not pour out fresh water and bitter water from the same opening, does it? 3:12 Can a fig tree produce olives, my brothers and sisters, 5 or a vine produce figs? Neither can a salt water spring produce fresh water.
