1 Where do wars and fightings among you come from? Don't they come from your pleasures that war in your members?
2 You lust, and don't have. You kill, covet, and can't obtain. You fight and make war. You don't have, because you don't ask.
3 You ask, and don't receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it for your pleasures.
4 You adulterers and adulteresses, don't you know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
5 Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, "The Spirit who lives in us yearns jealously"?
6 But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble."
