"A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; And a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:" Proverbs 1:5

James 3:14-15

"But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish." James 3:14-15 KJV

Dear God, 

Make it so that envy and selfish ambition may not be allowed to take root in my heart. I ask for your forgiveness and for the strength to resist these temptations. Help me to focus on what is good and true, and to pursue wisdom that comes from above. May my words and actions be marked by gentleness, humility, and grace, and may they bring life and hope to those around me.  

In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen. 

“But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.”

James 3:14-15 KJV

If you are selfish and have bitter jealousy in your hearts, you have no reason to boast. Your boasting is a lie that hides the truth. 15That kind of “wisdom” does not come from God. That “wisdom” comes from the world. It is not spiritual. It is from the devil.

James 3:14-15 ERV

But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. 15Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.

James 3:14-15 NIV

Kung pagkainggit at pagkamakasarili naman ang umiiral sa inyong puso, huwag ninyong ipagyabang na may karunungan kayo, dahil pinasisinungalingan nʼyo ang katotohanan. 15Ang ganitong karunungan ay hindi nagmumula sa Dios kundi sa mundo. Mula ito sa diyablo at hindi sa Banal na Espiritu. 

Santiago 3:14-15 ASND
