James 1:13James 1:18

B. Resisting Temptation as God-born Ones

13 Let no one say when he is 1atempted, I am tempted 2of God; for God 3cannot be tempted of evil, and He Himself 4tempts no one.

14 But each one is tempted when he is drawn away and enticed by his own alusts;

15 Then the lust, having conceived, 1gives birth to sin; and the sin, when it is fully grown, brings forth adeath.

16 Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers.

17 All good 1giving and every perfect 1agift is from babove, coming down from the 2Father of lights, with whom is no 3cvariation or shadow cast by turning.

18 He 1abrought us forth by the 2word of btruth, 3purposing that we might be a kind of 4cfirstfruits of His creatures.
