21Consider it alljoy, my brethren, when you encounter2variousatrials,
3knowing that 3the testing of your 4faithproducesb5endurance.
And let c6endurancehave its perfectdresult, so that you may be e7perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
But ifany of you 8lackswisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to allgenerously and fwithoutreproach, and 9it will be given to him.
But he must 10ask in faith11withoutanydoubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, 12driven and tossed by the wind.
For that man ought not to expect that he will receiveanything from the Lord,
being a g13double-mindedman, 14unstable in all his ways.
915But the hbrother of humble circumstances is to glory in his highposition ;
and the richman is to glory in his humiliation, because16likeifloweringgrass he will passaway.
For the sunrises with j17a scorchingwind and 18withers the grass ; and its flowerfallsoff and the beauty of its appearance is destroyed ; sotoo the richman in the midst of his pursuits will fadeaway.
1219Blessed is a manwhoperseveres under trial ; for once he has kbeenapproved, he will receive20the crown of lifewhich the Lord 21has promised to those who 22love Him.
