Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:12 - one is the lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy; thou -- who art thou that dost judge the other?
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:13 - Go, now, ye who are saying, 'To-day and to-morrow we will go on to such a city, and will pass there one year, and traffic, and make gain;'
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:14 - who do not know the thing of the morrow; for what is your life? for it is a vapour that is appearing for a little, and then is vanishing;
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:15 - instead of your saying, 'If the Lord may will, we shall live, and do this or that;'
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:16 - and now ye glory in your pride; all such glorying is evil;
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 4:17 - to him, then, knowing to do good, and not doing, sin it is to him.
