MEVModern English Version
4#Jn 15:19; Ro 8:7You adulterers and adulteresses, do you not know that the friendship with 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 says in vain, “He yearns jealously for the spirit that lives in us”#The source of this quotation is uncertain.? 6#Pr 3:34; 1Pe 5:5But He gives more grace. For this reason it says:
“God resists the proud,
but gives grace to the humble.”#Pr 3:34.
7#Eph 4:27; 1Pe 5:8–9Therefore submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8#2Ch 15:2; Jas 1:8Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9#Lk 6:25; Pr 14:13Grieve and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to dejection. 10#Mt 23:12Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.
