If any of you lack wisdom,

     let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not;

                 and it shall be given him.
 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering.

For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

                             A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

 My brethren, ....

     Be not.... Many masters,

          Knowingthat we shall receive the greater condemnation.

 For in many things we offend all.

     If any man offend not in word,

             the same is a perfect man,

                            and able also to bridle the whole body.


But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts,

 glory not, and lie not against the truth.
 This wisdom descendeth not from above,

but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

 For where envying and strife is, 

there is confusion and every evil work.

 James,   A servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,

    To the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad,

                                       Greetings.
