        • b 1:2 - Gk [brothers]
          3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance;
          4 and let endurance have its full effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking in nothing.
          5 If any of you is lacking in wisdom, ask God, who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly, and it will be given you.
          6 But ask in faith, never doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind;
          7 8 for the doubter, being double-minded and unstable in every way, must not expect to receive anything from the Lord.
