8 If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, i“You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well. 2 You desire and do not have, so you murder. 14 But if you have bitter ojealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. 12 Can a fig tree, my brothers, bear olives, or a grapevine produce figs? 6; Isa. 9 But if you jshow partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors. 2:21]; See John 9:41. 7 so that qthe tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes rthough it is tested by sfire—may be found to result in tpraise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 22 You see that wfaith was active along with his works, and faith was completed xby his works; Sinful desires and affections stop prayer, and the working of our desires toward God. 13 Who is wise and understanding among you? 4 What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives kthe early and the late rains. 7 Be patient, therefore, brothers,1 until the coming of the Lord. 12 There is only (R)one lawgiver and (S)judge, he who is able to save and (T)to destroy. 2 My brothers,1 wshow no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, xthe Lord of glory. 24 You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone. 11 Does a spring pour forth from the same opening both fresh and salt water? 10 (O)Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you. Is anyone cheerful? 11 (P)Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. 6 And ithe tongue is a fire, a world of unrighteousness. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. 17 And if you ncall on him as Father who ojudges pimpartially according to each one’s deeds, conduct yourselves qwith fear throughout the time of your exile, For tyou are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Can that faith save him? He does not resist you. 4 Behold, cthe wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, are crying out against you, and dthe cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of ethe Lord of hosts. How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire!

Neither can a salt pond yield fresh water. 3:7; [Luke 15:20], ver. 17 Elijah was a man bwith a nature like ours, and che prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for dthree years and six months it did not rain on the earth. 23 and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, y“Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a zfriend of God. 1:3; Mal. bTherefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. 8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. 16 As it is, you boast in your arrogance. Therefore it says, (G)“God opposes the proud but (H)gives grace to the humble.” 7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. 5 So also the tongue is a small member, yet hit boasts of great things. What is your life? 11 mDo not speak evil against one another, brothers.4 The one who speaks against a brother or njudges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. You have fattened your hearts in ha day of slaughter. 16 qand one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good2 is that? But (U)who are you to judge your neighbor? Commentary on James 4:11-17 (Read James 4:11-17) Our lips must be governed by the law of kindness, as well as truth and justice. 12 cIt was revealed to them that dthey were serving not themselves but you, in the things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the good news to you eby the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, fthings into which angels long to look. 20 He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but wwas made manifest xin the last times for the sake of you 8 uThough you have not seen him, you love him. 3 gBlessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! For (W)you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. 23 dsince you have been born again, enot of perishable seed but of imperishable, through fthe living and abiding word of God; 25  hbut the word of the Lord remains forever.”. Wordly and fleshly lusts are distempers, which will not allow content or satisfaction. Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary 4:1-10 Since all wars and fightings come from the corruptions of our own hearts, it is right to mortify those lusts that war in the members.
