Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse [your] hands, sinners, and purify [your] hearts, ye double-minded.
Be wretched, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and [your] joy to heaviness.
Humble yourselves a before [the] Lord, and he shall exalt you.
Speak not against one another, brethren. He that speaks against [his] brother, or judges his brother, speaks against [the] law and judges [the] law. But if thou judgest [the] law, thou art not doer of [the] law, but judge.
One is the lawgiver and judge, who is able to save and to destroy: but who art *thou* who judgest thy b neighbour?
Go to now, ye who say, To-day or to-morrow will we go into such a city and spend a year there, and traffic and make gain,
ye who c do not know what will be on the morrow, ([for] what [is] your life? It is even a vapour, appearing for a little while, and then disappearing,)
instead of your saying, If the Lord should [so] will and we should live, we will also do this or that.
But now ye glory in your vauntings: all such glorying is evil.
To him therefore who knows how to do good, and does it not, to him it is sin.
