a. 2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
b. 3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
c. 4 But let patience have her perfect work,
d. that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
e. 5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
f. 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering.
g. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
h. 8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
