5 Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, ''The Spirit who lives in us yearns jealously''?
6 But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, ''God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.''
7 Be subject therefore to God. But resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
9 Lament, mourn, and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to gloom.
