Tools specific to Jas 1:1

Jas 1:1

James, a bondservant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,
To the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad:
Greetings.

Tools specific to Jas 1:2

Jas 1:2

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials,

Tools specific to Jas 1:3

Jas 1:3

knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.

Tools specific to Jas 1:4

Jas 1:4

But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

Tools specific to Jas 1:5

Jas 1:5

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

Tools specific to Jas 1:6

Jas 1:6

But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.

Tools specific to Jas 1:7

Jas 1:7

For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord;

Tools specific to Jas 1:8

Jas 1:8

he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

Tools specific to Jas 1:9

Jas 1:9

Let the lowly brother glory in his exaltation,

Tools specific to Jas 1:10

Jas 1:10

but the rich in his humiliation, because as a flower of the field he will pass away.

Tools specific to Jas 1:11

Jas 1:11

For no sooner has the sun risen with a burning heat than it withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beautiful appearance perishes. So the rich man also will fade away in his pursuits.

Tools specific to Jas 1:12

Jas 1:12

Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.

Tools specific to Jas 1:13

Jas 1:13

Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone.

Tools specific to Jas 1:14

Jas 1:14

But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.

Tools specific to Jas 1:15

Jas 1:15

Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.

Tools specific to Jas 1:16

Jas 1:16

Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.

Tools specific to Jas 1:17

Jas 1:17

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

Tools specific to Jas 1:18

Jas 1:18

Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.

Tools specific to Jas 1:19

Jas 1:19

So then,fn my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath;

Tools specific to Jas 1:20

Jas 1:20

for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

Tools specific to Jas 1:21

Jas 1:21

Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.

Tools specific to Jas 1:22

Jas 1:22

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

Tools specific to Jas 1:23

Jas 1:23

For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror;

Tools specific to Jas 1:24

Jas 1:24

for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.

Tools specific to Jas 1:25

Jas 1:25

But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.

Tools specific to Jas 1:26

Jas 1:26

If anyone among youfn thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless.

Tools specific to Jas 1:27

Jas 1:27

Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
