Warning Against Pride

1From where come wars and fights among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? 2You lust, and have not: you kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: you fight and war, yet you have not, because you ask not. 3You ask, and receive not, because you ask amiss, that you may consume it on your lusts. 4You adulterers and adulteresses, know you not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. 5Do you think that the scripture said in vain, The spirit that dwells in us lusts to envy? 6But he gives more grace. Why he said, God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.
