“Can the figtree, my brethren, beare oliue berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountaine both yeeld salt water & fresh.”
King James Version (KJV)
9. Therewith blesse wee God, euen the Father: and therewith curse wee men, which are made after the similitude of God. 10. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing: my brethren, these things ought not so to be. 11. Doeth a fountaine send foorth at the same place sweet water and bitter? 12. Can the figtree, my brethren, beare oliue berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountaine both yeeld salt water & fresh. 13. Who is a wise man and indued with knowledge amongst you? let him shew out of a good conuersation his workes with meekenes of wisedome. 14. But if ye haue bitter enuying and strife in your hearts glory not, and lie not against the trueth. 15. This wisedome descendeth not from aboue, but is earthly, sensuall, deuilish.
