chapters: 1 2 3 4 5
EnglishLatin
31Be ye not many masters, my brethren, knowing that you receive the greater judgment.nolite plures magistri fieri fratres mei scientes quoniam maius iudicium sumitis
32For in many things we all offend. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man. He is able also with a bridle to lead about the whole body.in multis enim offendimus omnes si quis in verbo non offendit hic perfectus est vir potens etiam freno circumducere totum corpus
33For if we put bits into the mouths of horses, that they may obey us: and we turn about their whole body.si autem equorum frenos in ora mittimus ad consentiendum nobis et omne corpus illorum circumferimus
34Behold also ships, whereas they are great and are driven by strong winds, yet are they turned about with a small helm, whithersoever the force of the governor willeth.ecce et naves cum magnae sint et a ventis validis minentur circumferuntur a modico gubernaculo ubi impetus dirigentis voluerit
35Even so the tongue is indeed a little member and boasteth great things. Behold how small a fire kindleth a great wood.ita et lingua modicum quidem membrum est et magna exultat ecce quantus ignis quam magnam silvam incendit
36And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is placed among our members, which defileth the whole body and inflameth the wheel of our nativity, being set on fire by hell.et lingua ignis est universitas iniquitatis lingua constituitur in membris nostris quae maculat totum corpus et inflammat rotam nativitatis nostrae inflammata a gehenna
37For every nature of beasts and of birds and of serpents and of the rest is tamed and hath been tamed, by the nature of man.omnis enim natura bestiarum et volucrum et serpentium etiam ceterorum domantur et domita sunt a natura humana
38But the tongue no man can tame, an unquiet evil, full of deadly poison.linguam autem nullus hominum domare potest inquietum malum plena veneno mortifero
39By it we bless God and the Father: and by it we curse men who are made after the likeness of God.in ipsa benedicimus Dominum et Patrem et in ipsa maledicimus homines qui ad similitudinem Dei facti sunt
310Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.ex ipso ore procedit benedictio et maledictio non oportet fratres mei haec ita fieri
311Doth a fountain send forth, out of the same hole, sweet and bitter water?numquid fons de eodem foramine emanat dulcem et amaram aquam
312Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear grapes? Or the vine, figs? So neither can the salt water yield sweet.numquid potest fratres mei ficus olivas facere aut vitis ficus sic neque salsa dulcem potest facere aquam
313Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge, among you? Let him shew, by a good contestation, his work in the meekness of wisdom.quis sapiens et disciplinatus inter vos ostendat ex bona conversatione operationem suam in mansuetudine sapientiae
314But if you have bitter zeal, and there be contention in your hearts: glory not and be not liars against the truth.quod si zelum amarum habetis et contentiones in cordibus vestris nolite gloriari et mendaces esse adversus veritatem
315For this is not wisdom, descending from above: but earthly, sensual, devilish.non est ista sapientia desursum descendens sed terrena animalis diabolica
316For where envying and contention is: there is inconstancy and every evil work.ubi enim zelus et contentio ibi inconstantia et omne opus pravum
317But the wisdom that is from above, first indeed is chaste, then peaceable, modest, easy to be persuaded, consenting to the good, full of mercy and good fruits, without judging, without dissimulation.quae autem desursum est sapientia primum quidem pudica est deinde pacifica modesta suadibilis plena misericordia et fructibus bonis non iudicans sine simulatione
318And the fruit of justice is sown in peace, to them that make peace.fructus autem iustitiae in pace seminatur facientibus pacem
