For that man ought not to expect that he will receiveanything from the Lord,
being a a4double-mindedman, 5unstable in all his ways.
96But the bbrother of humble circumstances is to glory in his highposition;
and the richman is to glory in his humiliation, because7likecfloweringgrass he will passaway.
For the sunrises with d8a scorchingwind and 9withers the grass; and its flowerfallsoff and the beauty of its appearance is destroyed; sotoo the richman in the midst of his pursuits will fadeaway.
1210Blessed is a manwhoperseveres under trial; for once he has ebeenapproved, he will receive11the crown of lifewhich the Lord 12has promised to those who 13love Him.
Let noonesay when he is tempted, "14I am being temptedfby God "; for Godcannot be temptedgby evil, and He Himself does not temptanyone.
But eachone is tempted when he is carriedaway and enticed by his ownlust.
15Then15when lust has conceived, it givesbirth to sin; and when 16sinhis accomplished, it bringsforthdeath.
1617Do not be ideceived, 18my belovedbrethren.
