nkjv@James:4:1 @ Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members?
nkjv@James:4:2 @ You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask.
nkjv@James:4:3 @ You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.
nkjv@James:4:4 @ Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
nkjv@James:4:5 @ Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, "The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously"?
nkjv@James:4:6 @ But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: "God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble."
nkjv@James:4:7 @ Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
nkjv@James:4:8 @ Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
nkjv@James:4:9 @ Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom.
nkjv@James:4:10 @ Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.
nkjv@James:4:11 @ Do not speak evil of one another, brethren. He who speaks evil of a brother and judges his brother, speaks evil of the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge.
nkjv@James:4:12 @ There is one Lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy. Who are you to judge another?
nkjv@James:4:13 @ Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit";
nkjv@James:4:14 @ whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.
nkjv@James:4:15 @ Instead you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that."
nkjv@James:4:16 @ But now you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil.
nkjv@James:4:17 @ Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.
