New International Version
Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark.

In the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches. But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire.

So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great things. How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire!
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!
