“Therewith blesse wee God, euen the Father: and therewith curse wee men, which are made after the similitude of God.”
King James Version (KJV)
6. And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquitie: so is the tongue amongst our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature, and it is set on fire of hell. 7. For euery kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind. 8. But the tongue can no man tame, it is an vnruly euill, ful of deadly poyson. 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.
