1 Whence wars and fightings among you? Not hence, from the pleasures of you of those warring in the members of you?
2 You strongly desire, and not you have; you murder and are zealous, and not you are able to obtain; you fight and you war, not you have, because the not to ask you;
3 you ask, and not you receive, because wickedly you ask, so that in the pleasure of you you may waste.
4 Adulterers and adulteresses, not know you, that the friendship of the world enmity of the God is? whoever therefore may wish a friend to be of the world, an enemy of the God is rendered.
5 Or think you, that vainly the writing speaks? To envy strongly inclines the spirit which dwelt in us?
6 Greater but it gives favor; therefore is says: The God to haughty ones sets himself in opposition, to lowly ones but he gives favor.
7 Be you subject therefore to the God; be opposed to the accuser, and he will flee from you;
8 draw you near to the God, and he will draw near to you; cleanse you hands, sinners, and purify you hearts, twosouled ones.
9 Lament you and mourn you and weep you; the laughter of you into morning let be turned, and the joy into sadness.
10 Be you humbled in presence of the Lord, and he will lift up you.
11 Not speak you evil of each other, brethren; the one speaking evil of a brother, and judging the brother of himself, speaks evil of law, and judges law, if but law thou judgest not thou art a doer of law, but a judge.
12 One is the lawgiver and judge, the one being able to save and to destroy; thou but who art thou who judgest the other?
13 Come now those saying: Today and tomorrow we may go into this the city, and we may stay there a year one, and may trade, and may acquire gain;
14 who not are acquainted with that of the morrow; (what for the life of you? a vapor for it is that for a little appearing, then and not appearing;)
15 instead of the to say you: If the Lord may be willing and we may live, and we may do this or that;
16 now but you boast in the proud speeches of you. All boasting such evil is.
17 Knowing therefore right to do, and not doing sin to him it is.
