(A)Consider it all joy, my brothers and sisters, when you encounter (B)various [a]trials, knowing that (C)the testing of your (D)faith produces [b](E)endurance. And let [c](F)endurance have its perfect [d]result, so that you may be [e](G)perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

But if any of you (H)lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and [f]without reproach, and (I)it will be given to him. But he must (J)ask in faith (K)without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, (L)driven and tossed by the wind. For that person ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a (M)[g]double-minded man, (N)unstable in all his ways.
