Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights,2 with whom there is no variableness, neither is there a shadow cast with his turning. [When the source of light turns, there is no shadow to be seen. God is light and the source of all goodness, virtue, kindness, mercy, wisdom, purity, cleanliness, gentleness, self-control, honor, peace, faith, humility, love, joy, knowledge, life, power, glory, holiness, and light.]
