“Ye aske and receiue not, because ye aske amisse, that yee may consume it vpon your lusts.”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
4:3 But if ye do ask, ye receive not, because ye ask amiss - That is, from a wrong motive.
Jas 4:3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss. Some even have prayed for the things which would satisfy their lusts, but God hears not such prayers.
