If any of you lacks wisdom,
When you lack wisdom,
let him ask God,
you need only ask God,
who gives generously to all without reproach,
who is lavish in generosity to all without spitefulness,
ground
and it will be given him.
and He will grant it to you accordingly.
conditional
But let him ask in faith,
So ask in confidence [ ∴ ] and only ask in confidence [ Mn ], as if you expect to receive,
with no doubting,
without second-guessing God's generosity,
negativepositive
for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea
for (1) the man who asks without believing is aimlessly adrift like a castaway at sea,
that is driven and tossed by the wind.
floundering in the wind and waves.
ideaexplanation
For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord;
Moreover, (2) such a man cannot expect to receive anything, let alone wisdom, from God;
he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
he is a fickle and wayward fool [whom God will not reward with wisdom].
