The fourth order diagrams in the perturbative expansion of the hadron mass are calculated using the static spherical cavity approximation to the MIT bag model and Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD). Only terms with color matrix structure different than that of the second order diagrams are retained.;The fourth order mass splitting is found to be smaller than the second order splitting by a factor of three or more.
