Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

James 4:13

_ _ Go to now — “Come now”; said to excite attention.

_ _ ye that sayboasting of the morrow.

_ _ To-day or to-morrow — as if ye had the free choice of either day as a certainty. Others read, “To-day and to-morrow.”

_ _ such a city — literally, “this the city” (namely, the one present to the mind of the speaker). This city here.

_ _ continue ... a year — rather, “spend one year.” Their language implies that when this one year is out, they purpose similarly settling plans for to come [Bengel].

_ _ buy and sell — Their plans for the future are all worldly.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on James 4:11-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

James 4:13

Come now, ye that say — As peremptorily as if your life were in your own hands.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

James 4:13

(8) Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:

(8) The other fault is this: That men do so confidently determine on these and those matters and businesses, as though every moment of their life did not depend on God.
