James 3:9

With this bless we God, even the Father; and with this curse we men, who are made after the similitude of God.
Read Chapter 3

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
By it we bless God:Such different effects from the same cause, as of blessing God, and cursing men, created to the likeness of God, seem contrary to the ordinary course of nature; for a fountain form the same source doth not send forth both sweet and bitter streams. Who is a wise man, and endued with knowledge among you? This seems to be connected with the admonition given at the beginning of the chapter, be not many masters; let none pretend to this but who have wisdom and knowledge, which also may be known by their prudent and mild conversation.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
