From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your luststhat war in your members? 2 Ye lust , and have not: ye kill , and desire to have , and cannotobtain : ye fight and war , yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 3 Ye ask , and receive not,because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. 4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses,know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be afriend of the world is the enemy of God. 5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spiritthat dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? 6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith , Godresisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. 7 Submit yourselves therefore to God.Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. 9 Be afflicted , andmourn , and weep : let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. 10 Humbleyourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up . 11 Speak not evil one of another,brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law,and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. 12 Thereis one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy : who art thou that judgest another? 13 Go tonow, ye that say , To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, andbuy and sell , and get gain : 14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what isyour life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away . 15 Forthat ye ought to say , If the Lord will , we shall live , and do this, or that. 16 But now ye rejoice inyour boastings: all such rejoicing is evil. 17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth itnot, to him it is sin.
