James 4:2

You lust, and have not: you kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: you fight and war, yet you have not, because you ask not.
Read Chapter 4

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
You covet, and have not. Though God has promised that whosoever asks shall receive, (Matthew vii. 8.) yet no wonder you receive not, because you ask amiss, by asking such temporal things as would be prejudicial to your soul, or because you ask not with humility, devotion, and perseverance. (Witham)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
