James 3:13James 3:18

G. Behaving in Wisdom

13 Who is awise and understanding among you? Let him show 1by his bgood manner of life his 2cworks in 3dmeekness of ewisdom.

14 But if you have bitter ajealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not boast and lie against the btruth.

15 1This wisdom is not that which descends from aabove, but is 2earthly, bsoulish, cdemonic.

16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition are, there adisorder and every worthless practice are.

17 But the 1awisdom from above is first bpure, then cpeaceable, 2forbearing, 3compliant, full of dmercy and good efruit, fimpartial, gwithout hypocrisy.

18 And the 1afruit of righteousness is bsown in cpeace 2by those who dmake peace.
