From whence come warsandfightingsaamongyou? come they nothence, even ofyourlusts that warinyourmembers?2
Ye lust , andhavenot: ye kill , and desire to have , andcannotobtain : ye fightandwar , yet ye havenot,becauseyeasknot.3
Ye ask , andreceivenot,because ye askamiss,that ye may consume it uponyourlusts.b4
Ye adulterersandadulteresses, know yenotthat the friendship of the worldisenmity with God?whosoevertherefore will be a friend of the worldis the enemy of God.5Do ye thinkthat the scripturesaith in vain, The spiritthatdwellethinuslustethtoenvy?6But he givethmoregrace.Wherefore he saith , Godresisteth the proud,butgivethgrace unto the humble.7
Submit yourselvestherefore to God.Resist the devil,and he will fleefromyou.8
Draw nigh to God,and he will draw nigh to you.Cleanse your hands, ye sinners;andpurify your hearts, ye double minded.9
Be afflicted , andmourn , andweep : let yourlaughter be turnedtomourning,and your joytoheaviness.
