Submit yourselves therefore to God. (A)Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (B)Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. (C)Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and (D)purify your hearts, (E)you double-minded. (F)Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. 10 (G)Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.

But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. 12 There is only (J)one lawgiver and (K)judge, he who is able to save and (L)to destroy. But (M)who are you to judge your neighbor?
