James 4:1-6 (Douay-Rheims)

View In My Bible
1 From whence are wars and contentions among you? Are they not hence, from your concupiscences, which war in your members? 2 You covet, and have not: you kill and envy and cannot obtain. You contend and war, and you have not: because you ask not. 3 You ask and receive not: because you ask amiss, that you may consume it on your concupiscences. 4 Adulterers, know you not that the friendship of this world is the enemy of God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of this world becometh an enemy of God. 5 Or do you think that the scripture saith in vain: To envy doth the spirit covet which dwelleth in you? 6 But he giveth greater grace. Wherefore he saith: God resisteth the proud and giveth grace to the humble.
