Two references to James??

So now that I look more closely, I see that there are actually two references to James within three verses of D&C 46!Link to D& C 46:7-9 and link to James 1 and James 4

Note that D&C 46:7 says “But ye are commanded in all things to ask of God, who giveth liberally,” and James 1:5 says, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally.” It sounds like this is referring directly to James.

Then of course, the connection I’ve already been exploring. D&C 46:9 says, “For verily I say unto you, they are given for the benefit of those who love me and keep all my commandments, and him that seeketh so to do; that all may be benefited that seek or that ask of me, that ask and not for a sign that they may consume it upon their lusts.” And James 4:3 says, “Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye mayconsume it upon your lusts.”

Why two references to James? What does this imply?
