But 1He gives a greatergrace. Therefore it says, "2GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVESGRACE TO THE HUMBLE."
73Submittherefore to God. 4Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
85Drawnear to God and He will drawnear to you. 6Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and 7purify your hearts, you 8double-minded.
99Be miserable and mourn and weep; let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy to gloom.
1010Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.
1111Do not speakagainstoneanother, 12brethren. He who speaksagainst a brotheror13judges his brother, speaksagainst14the law and judges the law; but if you judge the law, you are not 15a doer of the law but a judge of it.
There is only one16Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is 17able to save and to destroy; but 18who are you who judge your neighbor?
1319Comenow, you who say, "20Todayortomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a yearthere and engage in business and make a profit."
14aYet you do not knowbwhat your life will be like tomorrow. 21You are just a vapor that appears for a littlewhile and thenvanishesaway.
15cInstead, you ought to say, "22If the Lordwills, we will live and alsodothisor that."
But as it is, you boast in your darrogance; 23allsuchboasting is evil.
