James 3:6

And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell.

നാവും ഒരു തീ തന്നേ; അതു നമ്മുടെ അംഗങ്ങളുടെ കൂട്ടത്തിൽ അനീതിലോകമായി ദേഹത്തെ മുഴുവൻ മലിനമാക്കി ജീവചക്രത്തിന്നു തീ കൊളുത്തുകയും നരകത്താൽ അതിന്നു തീ പിടിക്കയും ചെയ്യുന്നു.

1 Peter 3:10

For "He who would love life And see good days, Let him refrain his tongue from evil, And his lips from speaking deceit.

“ജീവനെ ആഗ്രഹിക്കയും ശുഭകാലം കാണ്മാൻ ഇച്ഛിക്കയും ചെയ്യുന്നവൻ ദോഷം ചെയ്യാതെ തന്റെ നാവിനെയും വ്യാജം പറയാതെ അധരത്തെയും അടക്കിക്കൊള്ളട്ടെ.

James 3:5

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

അങ്ങനെ തന്നേ നാവും ചെറിയ അവയവം എങ്കിലും വളരെ വമ്പു പറയുന്നു. കുറഞ്ഞ തീ എത്ര വലിയ കാടു കത്തിക്കുന്നു;
