5 Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in usa ?
6 But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”b
7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
9 Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom.
10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
