Let no man, being tempted, say, I am tempted of God. For God cannot be tempted by evil things, and himself tempts no one.
But every one is tempted, drawn away, and enticed by his own lust;
then lust, having conceived, gives birth to sin; but sin fully completed brings forth death.
Do not err, my beloved brethren.
Every good gift and every perfect gift a comes down b from above, from the Father of lights, with whom is no variation nor shadow of turning.
According to his own will c begat he us by the word of truth, that we should be a certain first-fruits of *his* creatures.
