James 4:1-6 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible

Proud or Humble

1 What is the source of the wars and the fights among you? Don't they come from the cravings that are at war within you?a 2 You desire and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. You do not have because you do not ask. 3 You ask and don't receive because you ask wrongly, so that you may spend it on your desires for pleasure. 4 Adulteresses!b Do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? So whoever wants to be the world's friend becomes God's enemy. 5 Or do you think it's without reason the Scripture says that the Spirit He has caused to live in us yearns jealously?c 6 But He gives greater grace. Therefore He says: God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. d
