11 And the Pharisees went out and began to contend with him, seeking from him a sign from heaven, testing him.
12 And sighing deeply in spirit, he said: "Why does this generation seek a sign? Amen, I say to you, if only a sign will be given to this generation!"
13 And sending them away, he climbed into the boat again, and he went away across the sea.
1 James, servant of God and of our Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes of the dispersion, greetings.
2 My brothers, when you have fallen into various trials, consider everything a joy,
3 knowing that the proving of your faith exercises patience,
4 and patience brings a work to perfection, so that you may be perfect and whole, deficient in nothing.
5 But if anyone among you is in need of wisdom, let him petition God, who gives abundantly to all without reproach, and it shall be given to him.
6 But he should ask with faith, doubting nothing. For he who doubts is like a wave on the ocean, which is moved about by the wind and carried away;
7 then a man should not consider that he would receive anything from the Lord.
8 For a man who is of two minds is inconstant in all his ways.
9 Now a humble brother should glory in his exaltation,
10 and a rich one, in his humiliation, for he will pass away like the flower of the grass.
11 For the sun has risen with a scorching heat, and has dried the grass, and its flower has fallen off, and the appearance of its beauty has perished. So also will the rich one wither away, according to his paths.
