5 Don't think that there is no truth in the scripture that says, "The spirit that God placed in us is filled with fierce desires."
6 But the grace that God gives is even stronger. As the scripture says, "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble." 1
7 So then, submit yourselves to God. Resist the Devil, and he will run away from you.
8 Come near to God, and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners! Purify your hearts, you hypocrites!
9 Be sorrowful, cry, and weep; change your laughter into crying, your joy into gloom!
10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
