  1. James 3:8 (KJV) “But the tongue can no man tame; [it is] an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.”

In the single instance where we see the word akataschetos used in the New Testament, and only in the KJV, the word is used in reference to the tongue. There is no indication or use of the word akataschetos being used to describe a person.
