Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:10 - Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:12 - There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and to destroy; but who are you who judge your neighbor?
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:13 - Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.”
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:14 - [fn]Yet you do not know [fn]what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:15 - [fn]Instead, you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that.”
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:16 - But as it is, you boast in your [fn]arrogance; all such boasting is evil.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:17 - Therefore, to one who knows the [fn]right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin.
