Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

James 3:10

_ _ The tongue, says Aesop, is at once the best and the worst of things. So in a fable, a man with the same breath blows hot and cold. “Life and death are in the power of the tongue” (compare Psalms 62:4).

_ _ brethren — an appeal to their consciences by their brotherhood in Christ.

_ _ ought not so to be — a mild appeal, leaving it to themselves to understand that such conduct deserves the most severe reprobation.
