James 4:1-3

NLT 1 What is causing the quarrels and fights among you? Don’t they come from the evil desires at war within you? NIV 1 What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don't they come from your desires that battle within you? NLT 2 You want what you don’t have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous of what others have, but you can’t get it, so you fight and wage war to take it away from them. Yet you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it. NIV 2 You want something but don't get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you do not ask God. NLT 3 And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure. NIV 3 When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
