James Chapter 1 Verse 12 God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him. (NLT)
Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. (NASB)
James Chapter 1 Verses 13-14 And remember, when you are being tempted, do not say, “God is tempting me.” God is never tempted to do wrong and He never tempts anyone else. Temptation comes from our own desires, which entice us and drag us away. (NLT)
Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil and He Himself does not tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. (NASB)
Stephen and Mary
