1 From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? 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. 3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. 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. 5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? 6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. 7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. 9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. 10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. 11 Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh 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. 12 There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another? 13 Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: 14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. 15 For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that. 16 But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil. 17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

1 Cary W = "From where do we complain, but from our lusts and unfulfilled desires?Submit to the high will of God within you.For know ye not, God is love, grace abounds, therefore, where is the grounds for complaint; yet in all your trials, does His love prevail.  Amen.  And so Be it."
2 Cary W = "Isn't James, the brother of Jesus; May he possibly reveal even, a deeper devotion to his brother, as well as Redeemer of the first born.  If we draw draw unto Him, we shall know His cleansing and purity of heart, even hath James.  Even so, He shall lift us up!"
3 Cary W = "Yeah,  be we but all breakers of God's perfection, if we submit unto the law of outward goodness; yet we all live by the grace of Him Who loves us unconditionally, and perfectly.We only are able to do What He gives us grace to do; in every step."
4 angela h = "This is what we call the sin of omission. We not only have to be careful what we do but also what we don't do. If we withhold good then we are sinning. "
