James 4 - NIV

6 But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says:

“God opposes the proud
but shows favor to the humble.”[a]

7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
