James 3:1 My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.

James 3:2 For in many things we offend all.(learn conversation). If any man offend not in word the same is a perfect man and able also to bridle the whole body.

Word 'offend' here in original is 'fall from', fall from what?.Philippians 2:2,3.

James 3:3-5 Behold.(take note, consider) we put bits in the horses' mouths that they may obey us and we turn about their whole body. Behold also the ships which though they be so great and are driven of fierce winds yet are they turned about with a very small helm whithersoever the governor listeth.(wherever the one in charge of the steering decides to go). Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things.(can bear one loftily; make him appear greater than what he knows himself to be). Behold.(or, 'be aware of'), how great a matter a little fire kindles!

A little match can cause a forest to burn, likewise the power of the tongue when it comes to matters of life's interactions.

James 3:6 And the tongue is a fire a world of iniquity. So is the tongue among our members that it defiles the whole body and sets on fire the course of nature and it is set on fire of hell.

James 3:6 And the tongue is a fire a world of iniquity.(the evils of the world begin with the tongue expressing wars, robbery, deceit, etc.). So is the tongue among our members that it defiles the whole body.(the person with foul speech, lies, slander is often regarded by those of higher standards, as base, uncultured, etc.).and sets on fire the course of nature.(original 'the wheel of birth'; that is, his undisciplined tongue is burning away any heritage of decency that others may have hoped for in him).and it is set on fire of.(or 'by').hell.(where's this place called hell?).

James 3:7,8 For every kind of beast and bird and serpent and of things in the sea is tamed and has been tamed of mankind. But the tongue can no man tame. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.

James 3:9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father and therewith curse we men.(Proverbs 25:8; 1Peter 3:10,15), which are made after the similitude of God.

James 3:10 Out of the same mouth proceeds blessing and cursing. My brethren these things ought not so to be.

James 3:11 Does a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?.(showing that there is no oneness at this level of living)

James 3:12 Can the fig tree my brethren bear olive berries? Either a vine figs? So can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.

James 3:13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him show out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.

James 3:13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him show out of a good conversation.(word 'conversation' is old English for 'conduct'; it's not what you say, it's what you pray:.Matthew 6:5,6;.'better to shut up and pray than to drive them away'; let others get to know you:.1Peter 3:15).his works with meekness of wisdom.(*).

James 3:14 But if you have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not and lie not against the truth. Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

James 3:15 This wisdom descends not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

James 3:16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

James 3:16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion.(confusion is a tool of the dark side: 1Corinthians 14:33).and every evil work.

James 3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure then peaceable, gentle and easy to be intreated full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.

James 3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure then peaceable, gentle and easy to be intreated.({*}, kind, agreeable, approachable.{allows others access to him}, not contentious) full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.

James 3:18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

How? By making peace with yourself first.
