James 4:13-17

KJV 13 Go to now, ye that say , To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell , and get gain : NIV 13 Now listen, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money." KJV 14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away . NIV 14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. KJV 15 For that ye ought to say , If the Lord will , we shall live , and do this, or that. NIV 15 Instead, you ought to say, "If it is the Lord's will, we will live and do this or that." KJV 16 But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil. NIV 16 As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil. KJV 17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin. NIV 17 Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn't do it, sins.
