On tlaneltocaquej nonequi cahuilisquej Dios ma quinmandaro

¿Canon hualehua ica nocualanihua niman nohuijsoquilo nemotzajlan? Hualehua itech on xcuajli nemoelehuilis yejhuan sanoyej tequiti ipan nemoyojlo. Nemejhuamej nenquinequij itlaj, niman san pampa xhueli nenquipiaj, nentemictisnequij. Tla se quipia itlaj cualtzin, nennexicolmiquij, niman pampa xhueli nenquipiaj, nemocamahuijsojquij tehuan niman nentehuijsoquij. Xnenquipiaj tlen nenquinequij pampa xnenquitlajtlaniliaj Dios. Niman ijcuac nentlajtlanij, xnenquiseliaj, pampa nentlajtlanij ican xcuajli elehuilistli. Nenquinequij nenquitlajtlanisquej para nenquitequitiltisquej ipan on tlen xcuajli nemoelehuilis quinequi. ¡Oh nemejhuamej tlacamej yejhuan xoc nenquitocaj Dios! Nemejhuamej quen se sihuatl yejhuan ahuilnemi. ¿Xnenquimatij ica on yejhuan quinequij ican xcuajli elehuilistli on tlajtlamach yejhuan oncaj ipan in tlalticpactli, yejhuamej nochihuaj itlahuelicnihuan Dios? San aquinon yejhuan ican xcuajli elehuilistli quinequi on tlajtlamach yejhuan oncaj ipan in tlalticpactli nochihua itlahuelicniu Dios. Ma ca xnemilican ica on Yectlajcuilojli xitlaj quijtosnequi ijcuac quijtohua:

On iEspíritu Dios yejhuan ocuajtitlan totech sanoyej cualani ijcuac iconehuan quitocaj on tlen xcuajli. Pero Dios techpalehuiya ican icuajlilis para tictlanij on xcuajli toelehuilis. Yejhua ica on Yectlajcuilojli quijtohua:
    Dios xquinselia on yejhuan nohueyimatij, yej yejhua quimpalehuiya ican iteicnelilis on yolyemanquej.

Yejhua ica, tej, xcahuilican Dios ma mechmandaro niman ma ca xmocahuilican on diablo ma mechmandaro, niman ijcon yejhua mechtlalcahuis.

Xnisihuican Dios niman yejhua mechnisihuis. Nemejhuamej tlajtlacolejquej, xmoquixtilican nemotlajtlacolhuan quen se tlacatl quinoquixtilia on tlajli ijcuac nomajtequiya. Nemejhuamej yejhuan nenquinequij tlajtlamach ipan in tlalticpactli ican xcuajli nemoelehuilis niman no nenquinequij nenquitocasquej Dios, xchipahuacan nemoyojlo.

Xmajmanacan; xmoyolcococan, niman xchocacan. Xmoteltican ma ca sa xhuetzcacan, yej ma quisa nemixayo. Xmoteltican ma ca sa xpaquican, yej pehua xmajmanacan.

10 Xmoyolyemanilican ixpan toTeco, niman yejhua mechhueyilis.

On tlaneltocaquej xquintocarohua notenehuilisquej on tlen xcuajli ihuan ocsequimej

11 Nocnihuan, ma ca xmotenehuilican on tlen xcuajli ihuan ocsequimej. On yejhuan quitenehuilia se tocniu on tlen xcuajli noso quitlajtlacolmaca, xquitlacaita on tlanahuatijli yejhuan technahuatia para titotlajsojtlasquej ihuan ocsequimej. In sa no ijqui quen quinemilisquia ica on tlanahuatijli xcuajli. Ijcuac ticnemiliaj ica se tlanahuatijli xcuajli, xtictlacamatij, yej tiquintlapejpeniaj catlejhua más cuajli para tictlacamatisquej niman catlejhua xcuajli para tictlacamatisquej. 12 Pero san Dios oquitemacac on tlanahuatijli niman san yejhua teyolcuitia niman tetlajtlacolmaca. Yejhua hueli techmaquixtis noso techtlajtlacolmacas. Pero tejhua, ¿tiaquinon para tiquijtos tla se tlacatl oquichiu on tlen cuajli noso xcuajli?

On tlaneltocaquej xquintocarohua nohueyimatisquej pampa xquimatij tlinon nochihuas ipan ocse tonajli

13 Aman nemejhuamej yejhuan nenquijtohuaj: “Aman noso mostla tiasquej neca ipan on hueyican noso ipan ocse hueyican, niman tinemisquej ompa se xipan, niman titlanamacasquej, niman tictlanisquej tomin”, xcaquican yejhua in. 14 Nemejhuamej xnenquimatij tlinon nochihuas mostla. Aman, tej, ¿tlinon quijtojticaj nemonemilis? Yejhua sa no ijqui quen on ayautli yejhuan huajnonextia pero nimantzin popolihui. 15 Yej ijquin nonequi nenquijtosquej: “Tla toTeco quinequi, tinemisquej niman ticchihuasquej yejhua in noso yejhua on.” 16 Pero nemejhuamej nenquijtohuaj nochi ocse tlamantic. Nemohueyimatij ica nenquiyacatztlaliaj on tlen nenquichihuasquej. On nemohueyimatilis sanoyej xcuajli. 17 Se tlacatl tlajtlacohua ijcuac xquichihua on tlen quimati cuajli para quichihuas.

James 4 New International Version (NIV)

Submit Yourselves to God

What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.

You adulterous people,[a] don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us[b]? But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says:

“God opposes the proud
    but shows favor to the humble.”[c]

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

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

Boasting About Tomorrow

13 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” 14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 15 Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” 16 As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil. 17 If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.
