James 4:1-7 NRS

1 Those conflicts and disputes among you, where do they come from? Do they not come from your cravings that are at war within you?
2 You want something and do not have it; so you commit murder. And you covet a something and cannot obtain it; so you engage in disputes and conflicts. You do not have, because you do not ask.
