James 3:15-17

Context
3:15 Such 1  wisdom does not come 2  from above but is earthly, natural, 3  demonic. 3:16 For where there is jealousy and selfishness, there is disorder and every evil practice. 3:17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, accommodating, 4  full of mercy and good fruit, 5  impartial, and not hypocritical. 6 

1 tn Grk “This.”

2 tn Grk “come down”; “descend.”

3 tn Grk “soulish,” which describes life apart from God, characteristic of earthly human life as opposed to what is spiritual. Cf. 1 Cor 2:14; 15:44-46; Jude 19.

4 tn Or “willing to yield,” “open to persuasion.”

5 tn Grk “fruits.” The plural Greek term καρπούς has been translated with the collective singular “fruit.”
