James 3: 5,6: "Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell." An uncontrolled tongue can defile the whole body, or the whole person. Course of nature can also be translated "wheel of life," meaning the whole course of life.
