Or do you suppose it is to no purpose that the Scripture says, "He yearns jealously over the spirit 1that he has made to dwell in us"?
But 2he gives more grace. Therefore it says, 3"God opposes the proud, but 4gives grace to the humble."
Submit yourselves therefore to God. 5Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
6Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. 7Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and 8purify your hearts, 9you double-minded.
10Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom.
11Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.
