13Whoamong you is wise and understanding? 2Let him show by his 3goodbehavior his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom.
But if you havebitter4jealousy and cselfishambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lieagainst5the truth.
15Thiswisdom is not that which comesdown6from above, but is 7earthly, d8natural, 9demonic.
For where10jealousy and eselfishambition exist, fthere is disorder and everyevilthing.
But the wisdom11from above is first12pure, then13peaceable, 14gentle, greasonable, 15full of mercy and goodfruits, 16unwavering, without17hypocrisy.
And the h18seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peaceiby those who makepeace.
