James 4:8

8 aDraw near to God, and He will bdraw near to you. cCleanse your hands, sinners, and dpurify your hearts, you 1double-souled!

81 I.e., double-minded (see note 81 in ch. 1), having the heart divided between two parties — God and the world. This makes people adulteresses (v. 4) and sinners, those who need their hearts purified and their hands cleansed that they may draw near to God and God may then draw near to them.
