Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:1 - Where do the conflicts and where do the quarrels among you come from? Is it not from this, from your passions that battle inside you?
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:2 - You desire and you do not have; you murder and envy and you cannot obtain; you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask;
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:3 - you ask and do not receive because you ask wrongly, so you can spend it on your passions.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:4 - Adulterers, do you not know that friendship with the world means hostility toward God? So whoever decides to be the world's friend makes himself God's enemy.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:5 - Or do you think the scripture means nothing when it says, "The spirit that God caused to live within us has an envious yearning"?
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:6 - But he gives greater grace. Therefore it says, "God opposes the proud, but he gives grace to the humble."
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:7 - So submit to God. But resist the devil and he will flee from you.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:8 - Draw near to God and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and make your hearts pure, you double-minded.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:9 - Grieve, mourn, and weep. Turn your laughter into mourning and your joy into despair.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:10 - Humble yourselves before the Lord and he will exalt you.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:11 - Do not speak against one another, brothers and sisters. He who speaks against a fellow believer or judges a fellow believer speaks against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but its judge.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:12 - But there is only one who is lawgiver and judge - the one who is able to save and destroy. On the other hand, who are you to judge your neighbor?
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:13 - Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go into this or that town and spend a year there and do business and make a profit."
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:14 - You do not know about tomorrow. What is your life like? For you are a puff of smoke that appears for a short time and then vanishes.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:15 - You ought to say instead, "If the Lord is willing, then we will live and do this or that."
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:16 - But as it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:17 - So whoever knows what is good to do and does not do it is guilty of sin.
