εἰ δὲ τῶν ἵππων τοὺς χαλινοὺς εἰς τὰ στόματα βάλλομεν
Now a if we put the bits into the horses’ mouths
εἰς τὸ πείθεσθαι αὐτοὺς ἡμῖν,
so that they will obey us,
καὶ ὅλον τὸ σῶμα αὐτῶν μετάγομεν.
we direct their entire body as well.
progression
ἰδοὺ καὶ τὰ πλοῖα τηλικαῦτα ὄντα καὶ ὑπὸ ἀνέμων σκληρῶν ἐλαυνόμενα,
Look at the ships also, though they are so great and are driven by strong winds,
μετάγεται ὑπὸ ἐλαχίστου πηδαλίου
are still directed by a very small rudder
ὅπου ἡ ὁρμὴ τοῦ εὐθύνοντος βούλεται,
wherever the inclination of the pilot desires.

οὕτως καὶ ἡ γλῶσσα μικρὸν μέλος ἐστὶν
So also the tongue is a small part of the body,
καὶ μεγάλα αὐχεῖ.
and yet it a boasts of great things.
ἰδοὺ ἡλίκον πῦρ ἡλίκην ὕλην ἀνάπτει•
