New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
14 But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your hearts, don't brag about being wise. That is the worst kind of lie. 14 But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth.
15 For jealousy and selfishness are not God's kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and motivated by the Devil. 15 Such "wisdom" does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, of the devil.
16 For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and every kind of evil. 16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.
