Jas 1:9 But let the humble brother rejoice in his exaltation;
Jas 1:10 and the rich one rejoice in his humiliation, because he shall pass away as the flower of the grass.
Jas 1:11 For the sun rose with the hot wind and dried up the grass, and its flower fell out, and the beauty of its appearance perished; so also the rich one will fade away in his ways.
Jas 3:1 My brothers, do not be many teachers, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.
Jas 3:2 For in many things we all offend. If anyone does not offend in word, the same is a full-grown man, able also to bridle the whole body.
Jas 3:3 Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, so that they may obey us, and we turn about their whole body.
Jas 3:4 Behold also the ships being so great, and driven by fierce winds, yet they are turned about with a very small rudder, where the impulse of him steering desires.
Jas 3:5 Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. Behold how little a fire kindles how large a forest!
Jas 3:6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. So the tongue is set among our members, spotting all the body and inflaming the course of nature, and being inflamed by hell.
Jas 3:7 For every kind of animals, and of birds, and of reptiles, and of sea-animals, is tamed, and has been tamed by mankind.
Jas 3:8 But no one can tame the tongue, it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
Jas 3:9 By this we bless God, even the Father. And by this we curse men, who have come into being according to the image of God.
Jas 3:10 Out of the same mouth proceeds blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so.
Jas 3:11 Does a fountain send forth at the same hole the sweet and the bitter?
Jas 3:12 Can the fig tree, my brothers, bear olive berries; or a vine, figs? So no fountain can yield both salt water and fresh.
Jas 1:19 Therefore, my beloved brothers, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.
Jas 1:20 For the wrath of man does not work out the righteousness of God.
Jas 1:2 My brothers, count it all joy when you fall into different kinds of temptations,
Jas 1:3 knowing that the trying of your faith works patience.
Jas 1:4 But let patience have its perfect work, so that you may be perfect and entire, lacking nothing.
Jas 1:5 But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and with no reproach, and it shall be given to him.
Jas 1:6 But let him ask in faith, doubting nothing. For he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, driven by the wind and tossed.
Jas 1:7 For do not let that man think that he shall receive anything from the Lord;
Jas 1:8 he is a double-minded man, not dependable in all his ways.
