James 4:1-3 English Standard Version

Friendship with the World

4 1  What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions[1] are at war within you?[2] 2  You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask. 3  You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.


[1] 4:1 Greek pleasures; also verse 3
