James 3:9-18 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
9 With it we bless 1our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, 2who have been made in the likeness of God; 10 from the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be this way. 11 Does a fountain send out from the same opening both afresh and bitter water? 12 3Can a fig tree, my brethren, produce olives, or a vine produce figs? Nor can salt water produce bfresh.

Wisdom from Above

13 Who among you is wise and understanding? 4Let him show by his 5good behavior his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter 6jealousy and cselfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against 7the truth. 15 This wisdom is not that which comes down 8from above, but is 9earthly, d10natural, 11demonic. 16 For where 12jealousy and eselfish ambition exist, fthere is disorder and every evil thing. 17 But the wisdom 13from above is first 14pure, then 15peaceable, 16gentle, greasonable, 17full of mercy and good fruits, 18unwavering, without 19hypocrisy. 18 And the h20seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace iby those who make peace.
