Parallel Strong's
Holman Christian Standard Bible
So too, though the tongue is a small part of the body, it boasts great things. Consider how large a forest a small fire ignites.

New American Standard Bible
So also the tongue is a small part of the body, and [yet] it boasts of great things. See how great a forest is set aflame by such a small fire!

King James Bible
Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
Parallel Verses
International Standard Version
In the same way, the tongue is a small part of the body, yet it can boast of great achievements. A huge forest can be set on fire by a little flame.

American Standard Version
So the tongue also is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how much wood is kindled by how small a fire!

Young's Literal Translation
so also the tongue is a little member, and doth boast greatly; lo, a little fire how much wood it doth kindle!
