    1. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

      But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

      And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
      James 3:16-18
