James 1:7; James 1:12; James 3:1; James 4:3; James 5:7; James 5:10 (New American Standard)
For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord,
Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.
Let not many of you become teachers, my brethren, knowing that as such we will incur a stricter judgment.
You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures.
Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious produce of the soil, being patient about it, until it gets the early and late rains.
As an example, brethren, of suffering and patience, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.
