James 4


4:1 From whence [come] wars and fightings among you? [come they]
 not hence, [even] from your lusts that war in your members?
4:2 Ye lust and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and
 cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye
 ask not.
4:3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may
 consume [it] upon your lusts.
4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the
 friendship of the world is enmity with God? whoever therefore
 will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
4:5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit
 that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?
4:6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth
 the proud, but giveth grace to the humble.
4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he
 will flee from you.
4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse
 [your] hands, [ye] sinners, and purify [your] hearts, [ye]
 double-minded.
4:9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be
 turned to mourning, and [your] joy to heaviness.
4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he will
 lift you up.
4:11 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 judgest the law,
 thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.
4:12 There is one lawgiver, who is able to save, and to destroy:
 who art thou that judgest another?
4:13 Come now, ye that say, To-day or to-morrow we will go into
 such a city, and continue there a year, and buy, and sell, and
 get gain:
4:14 Whereas ye know not what [will be] on the morrow: For what
 [is] your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little
 time, and then vanisheth away.
4:15 Instead of that ye [ought] to say, If the Lord will, we
 shall live, and do this, or that.
4:16 But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is
 evil.
4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth [it]
 not, to him it is sin.
