James 4:1-8

KJV 1 From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? NIV 1 What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? KJV 2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 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. KJV 3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. 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. KJV 4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the 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. KJV 5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? NIV 5 Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us ? KJV 6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto 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.” KJV 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. KJV 8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye 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.
