Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds,
If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,
Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.
For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.
All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and creatures of the sea are being tamed and have been tamed by man,
For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.
As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil.
Above all, my brothers, do not swear--not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. Let your "Yes" be yes, and your "No," no, or you will be condemned.
