New Living Translation:
“If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless.”
“You might think you are a very religious person. But if your tongue is out of control, you are fooling yourself. Your careless talk makes your offerings to God worthless.”
Contemporary English Version:
“If you think you are being religious, but can't control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is useless.”
“If a person thinks that he is religious but can’t control his tongue, he is fooling himself. That person’s religion is worthless.”
Beloved, don’t be boastful or talk ill of anyone, watch what you say and make sure you don’t have verbal diarrhea!
