What is with James 4:4,5 ?

 blue-question-mark.jpgWhat is up with James 4:4,5?  There are quite a number of differences in the translations.  Does the last part talk about the Holy Spirit or the human spirit, and is the Lord jealous for us or are we zealous for worldliness? 

James 4:4-5 (ESV)
    You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. [5] Or do you suppose it is to no purpose that the Scripture says, “He yearns jealously over the spirit that he has made to dwell in us?”

Stay Tuned…..
