James 4:4

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers


King James Version

Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
New King James Version

Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
New American Standard Bible

You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
New International Version

You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.
The Amplified Bible

You [are like] unfaithful wives having illicit love affairs with the world and breaking your marriage vow to God! Do you not know that being the world’s friend is being God’s enemy? So whoever chooses to be a friend of the world takes his stand as an enemy of God.
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

O, [spiritual] adulteresses [untrue to God your husband, O.T. relation of Israel to God], do you not know that your friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore would desire after a mature consideration to be a friend of the world is [thereby] constituted an enemy of God.
Phillips’ Modern English

You are like unfaithful wives, never realising that to be the world’s lover means becoming the enemy of God! Anyone who chooses to be the world’s friend is thereby making himself God’s enemy.
Williams’ Language of the People

You faithless wives! Do you not know that the friendship of the world means enmity with God? So whoever wants to be a friend to the world puts himself down as an enemy to God.
