James 4:1-11

ESV 1 What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you? NIV 1 What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? ESV 2 You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask. NIV 2 You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. ESV 3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions. 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. ESV 4 You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. NIV 4 You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. ESV 5 Or do you suppose it is to no purpose that the Scripture says, "He yearns jealously over the spirit that he has made to dwell in us"? NIV 5 Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us ? ESV 6 But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, "God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble." NIV 6 But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” ESV 7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. NIV 7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. ESV 8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. NIV 8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. ESV 9 Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. NIV 9 Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. ESV 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you. NIV 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. ESV 11 Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. NIV 11 Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against a brother or sister or judges them speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it.
