James 3

The General Epistle of James

Return to Index

Chapter 4

1

Whence are wars and fightings among you? not thence -- out of your passions, that are as soldiers in your members?

2

ye desire, and ye have not; ye murder, and are zealous, and are not able to attain; ye fight and war, and ye have not, because of your not asking;

3

ye ask, and ye receive not, because evilly ye ask, that in your pleasures ye may spend it.

4

Adulterers and adulteresses! have ye not known that friendship of the world is enmity with God? whoever, then, may counsel to be a friend of the world, an enemy of God he is set.

5

Do ye think that emptily the Writing saith, `To envy earnestly desireth the spirit that did dwell in us,`

6

and greater grace he doth give, wherefore he saith, `God against proud ones doth set Himself up, and to lowly ones He doth give grace?`

7

be subject, then, to God; stand up against the devil, and he will flee from you;

8

draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you; cleanse hands, ye sinners! and purify hearts, ye two-souled!

9

be exceeding afflicted, and mourn, and weep, let your laughter to mourning be turned, and the joy to heaviness;

10

be made low before the Lord, and He shall exalt you.

11

Speak not one against another, brethren; he who is speaking against a brother, and is judging his brother, doth speak against law, and doth judge law, and if law thou dost judge, thou art not a doer of law but a judge;

12

one is the lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy; thou -- who art thou that dost judge the other?

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;`

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;

15

instead of your saying, `If the Lord may will, we shall live, and do this or that;`

16

and now ye glory in your pride; all such glorying is evil;

17

to him, then, knowing to do good, and not doing, sin it is to him.
