13Who is wise and has understanding among you? He should show his works by good conduct with wisdom’s gentleness. # Jms 1:21; 2:18 14But if you have bitter envy and selfish ambition in your heart, don’t brag and deny the truth. # Rm 2:8; 13:13; 2Co 12:20 15Such wisdom does not come from above but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. # 2Th 2:9; 1Tm 4:1; Jms 1:17; Rv 2:24 16For where envy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every kind of evil. 17But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peace-loving, gentle, compliant, full of mercy and good fruits, without favoritism and hypocrisy. # Lk 6:36; Rm 12:9; 1Co 2:6; Heb 12:11; Jms 2:4 18And the fruit of righteousness # Pr 11:18; Is 32:17; Hs 10:12; Am 6:12; Gl 6:8; Php 1:11 is sown in peace by those who cultivate peace.
