    This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

    This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, demoniacal.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:15

    Porque esta sabiduría no es la que desciende de lo alto, sino que es terrenal, animal, diablica.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - James 3:15

    Verse 15. This
    wisdom descendeth not from above] God is not the author of it, because it is bitter - not meek. See at the end of this chapter.

    Is earthly] Having this life only in view.

    Sensual] yucikh? Animal - having for its object the gratification of the passions and animal propensities.

    Devilish] daimoniwdhv? Demoniacal - inspired by demons, and maintained in the soul by their indwelling influence.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. This wisdom descendeth not from above , etc.] If it must be called wisdom, as it ought not; an envious, quarrelsome, and contentious spirit, does not deserve such a name; yet if any will call it so, or can think that a man of such a disposition is a man possessed of wisdom; it is such wisdom as does not come from above, from heaven, from the Father of lights, from Christ, in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge, and from the spirit of wisdom and revelation: what the Jews say of the wisdom of Egypt, may be said of this, that it is hatt hmkj wisdom from below, or inferior wisdom, as it follows: but is earthly, sensual, and devilish ; it is earthly, or of the earth, and springs from thence; and it is only conversant about earthly things, and is only suitable to earthly minds: it is sensual, or natural; what a natural man, one destitute of the Spirit of God, and without the knowledge of the things of the Spirit, may have; it is what is acquired by the mere strength of nature, and only relates to natural things; and is only agreeable to corrupt nature, or to a natural and unregenerate man: yea, it is devilish, or such as the devil himself has; and which comes from him, and being used, serves only his kingdom and interest.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 13-18 - These verses show the difference between
    men's pretending to be wise and their being really so. He who thinks well, or he who talks well, is not wise in the sense of the Scripture, if he does not live and ac well. True wisdom may be know by the meekness of the spirit and temper Those who live in malice, envy, and contention, live in confusion; an are liable to be provoked and hurried to any evil work. Such wisdo comes not down from above, but springs up from earthly principles, act on earthly motives, and is intent on serving earthly purposes. Thos who are lifted up with such wisdom, described by the apostle James, i near to the Christian love, described by the apostle Paul; and both ar so described that every man may fully prove the reality of his attainments in them. It has no disguise or deceit. It cannot fall in with those managements the world counts wise, which are crafty an guileful; but it is sincere, and open, and steady, and uniform, an consistent with itself. May the purity, peace, gentleness teachableness, and mercy shown in all our actions, and the fruits of righteousness abounding in our lives, prove that God has bestowed upo us this excellent gift __________________________________________________________________
