1:13 When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone;
1:14 but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed.
1:15 Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
1:16 Don't be deceived, my dear brothers.
1:17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
1:18 He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.
