James 4:1-6 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible

Subject Yourselves to God

1 From where [are] conflicts and from where [are] quarrels among you? [Is it] not from this, from your pleasures that wage war among your members? 2 You desire and do not have; you murder and are filled with envy, and are not able to obtain; you fight and quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask. 3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, in order that you may spend [it] on your pleasures. 4 Adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wants to be a friend of the world makes [himself] an enemy of God. 5 Or do you think that in vain the scripture says, "The spirit which he caused to dwell in us desires jealously"?a 6 But he gives greater grace. Therefore it says, "God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble."
