Wisdom from Above
n Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom.
But if you have o bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, p do not boast and lie against the truth.
q This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic.
For r where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.
But s the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, t without partiality u and without hypocrisy.
v Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy.
Indeed you are called a Jew, and rest on the law, and make your boast in God.
Whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame - who set their mind on earthly things.

But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory.
My brethren, do not hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with partiality.
Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good.
