If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God (literal translation) [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him.
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

And if, as is the case, anyone of you [when undergoing these trials] is deficient wisdom, let him keep on presenting his request in the presence of the giving God who gives to all with simplicity and without reserve [a pure, simple giving of good without admixture of evil or bitterness], and who does not [with the giving of the gift] reproach [the recipient with any manifestation of displeasure or regret], and it shall be given him.
Phillips’ Modern English

And if, in the process, any of you does not know how to meet any particular problem he has only to ask God – who gives generously to all men without making them feel guilty – and he may be quite sure that the necessary wisdom will be given him.

But if any one of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask God who generously gives to everyone and never reproaches one with its lack, and it will be given to him.
