CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Every kind of beasts - That is, every species of wild beasts, πασα φυσις θηριων, is tamed, i.e. brought under man's power and dominion.

Whether Our Atmosphere is the Demons' Place of Punishment?
Whether a Religious Sins More Grievously than a Secular by the Same Kind of Sin?
It contained all kinds of four-footed animals, as well as reptiles and birds.
The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one's life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.
but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
