Do Not Boast About Tomorrow
13 Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow (M let us) we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit”;
14 whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? (Job 7:7; Ps. 102:3; 1 Pet. 1:24) It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.
15 Instead, you ought to say, (Acts 18:21; 1 Cor. 4:19) “If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.”
16 But now you boast in your arrogance. (1 Cor. 5:6) All such boasting is evil.
17 Therefore, ([Luke 12:47]; John 9:41; 2 Pet. 2:21) to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.
