13 n Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. 14 But if you have o bitter envy and 1 self-seeking in your hearts, p do not boast and lie against the truth. 15 q This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. 16 For r where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. 17 But s the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, t without partiality u and without hypocrisy. 18 v Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
