James 3:5

Context
NET ©

So too the tongue is a small part of the body, 1  yet it has great pretensions. 2  Think 3  how small a flame sets a huge forest ablaze.

NIV ©

Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark.

NASB ©

So also the tongue is a small part of the body, and yet it boasts of great things. See how great a forest is set aflame by such a small fire!

NLT ©

So also, the tongue is a small thing, but what enormous damage it can do. A tiny spark can set a great forest on fire.

MSG ©

A word out of your mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything--or destroy it! It only takes a spark, remember, to set off a forest fire.

BBE ©

Even so the tongue is a small part of the body, but it takes credit for great things. How much wood may be lighted by a very little fire!

NRSV ©

So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great exploits. How great a forest is set ablaze by a small fire!

NKJV ©

Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles!
