New International Version (NIV)
James 4:6-12

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

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

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil,(B) and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you.(C) Wash your hands,(D) you sinners, and purify your hearts,(E) you double-minded.(F) Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom.(G) 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.(H)

11 Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another.(I) Anyone who speaks against a brother or sister[b] or judges them(J) speaks against the law(K) and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it,(L) but sitting in judgment on it. 12 There is only one Lawgiver and Judge,(M) the one who is able to save and destroy.(N) But you—who are you to judge your neighbor?(O)
