2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,
5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
19 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,
21 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.
10 For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.
7 All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind,
16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.
16 As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil.
12 Above all, my brothers and sisters, do not swear—not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. All you need to say is a simple “Yes” or “No.” Otherwise you will be condemned.
