RESIST the devil…
It is such a simple statement yet a very powerful one and God has included much more in these few verses to guide us.
However, having done these things, we can be confident that if we: RESIST the devil…he will FLY from us.
James 4:7-10 (William Tyndale’s New Testament, 1534)
James 4:7 Submit yourselves to God and resist the devil and he will fly from you.
James 4:8 Draw nigh to God and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands ye sinners and purge your hearts ye wavering minded.
James 4:9 Suffer afflictions: sorrow ye and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to heaviness.
James 4:10 Cast down yourselves before the Lord and he shall lift you up.
Same verses from the King James Bible:
James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God: resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
James 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you: cleanse your hands ye sinners, and purify your hearts ye double minded.
James 4:9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.
James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

If you are curious about owning a William Tyndale Bible, check out our small Store. Orders are fulfilled by Christianbook Distributors located in Peabody, Massachusetts, USA.
The British Library paid over one million pounds in 1994 for an original copy of the 1526 New Testament. A facsimile (digital photocopy) of this same New Testament is available in our store — for a very reasonable price.
We have items in the store related to William Tyndale and items related to the King James Bible. Some are very inexpensive.
One example, you can rent or purchase via streaming the “Man with a Mission” documentary which features Tyndale scholar, David Daniell. It is very low cost, but quite an interesting video.
