Behold, we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.
Read Chapter 3
George Leo Haydock
If we put bits By the help of a bridle, a skillful rider can turn and guide horses never so headstrong and unruly. An experienced pilot sitting at the helm, steers the course of the vessel in a storm, turns and guides the ship what way he thinks most proper; so must a man learn, and use his utmost endeavours to bridle and govern his tongue.
