Blessings and Cursings

But the human tongue can be tamed by no man.
It is a restless (undisciplined, irreconcilable) evil,
full of deadly poison.
With it we bless the Lord and Father,
and with it we curse men who were made in God's likeness!
Out of the same mouth come forth blessing and cursing.
These things, my brethren, ought not to be so.
Does a fountain send forth [simultaneously] from the same opening fresh water and bitter?
Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine figs?
Neither can a salt spring furnish fresh water.
James 3:8-12
