|James 1 (NKJV™)|
|12||Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.|
|13||Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone.|
|14||But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.|
|15||Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.|
|16||Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.|
