James 4 ©
Our evil lusts and passions tend to breed quarrels among ourselves, and to set us at enmity with God. The way to overcome them, and recover God's favour. Against slander and censoriousness. We must not presume on the future, but commit ourselves to God's providence.
lDraw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. mCleanse your hands, ye sinners; and npurify your hearts, ye double minded.
qSpeak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, rspeaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.
