James 4:6-10

Context
4:6 But he gives greater grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but he gives grace to the humble.” 1  4:7 So submit to God. But resist the devil and he will flee from you. 4:8 Draw near to God and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and make your hearts pure, you double-minded. 2  4:9 Grieve, mourn, 3  and weep. Turn your laughter 4  into mourning and your joy into despair. 4:10 Humble yourselves before the Lord and he will exalt you.

1 sn A quotation from Prov 3:34.

2 tn Or “two-minded” (the same description used in 1:8).

3 tn This term and the following one are preceded by καί (kai) in the Greek text, but contemporary English generally uses connectives only between the last two items in such a series.

4 tn Grk “let your laughter be turned.”
