Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:1

James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are of the Dispersion, greeting.

Tools specific to Jas 1:2

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:2

Count it all joy, my brethren, when ye fall into manifold temptations;

Tools specific to Jas 1:3

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:3

knowing that the proving of your faith worketh patience.

Tools specific to Jas 1:4

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:4

And let patience have its perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, lacking in nothing.

Tools specific to Jas 1:5

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:5

But if any of you lacketh wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth to all liberally and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

Tools specific to Jas 1:6

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:6

But let him ask in faith, nothing doubting: for he that doubteth is like the surge of the sea driven by the wind and tossed.

Tools specific to Jas 1:7

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:7

For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord;

Tools specific to Jas 1:8

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:8

a doubleminded man, unstable in all his ways.

Tools specific to Jas 1:9

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:9

But let the brother of low degree glory in his high estate:

Tools specific to Jas 1:10

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:10

and the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.

Tools specific to Jas 1:11

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:11

For the sun ariseth with the scorching wind, and withereth the grass; and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his goings.

Tools specific to Jas 1:12

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:12

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation; for when he hath been approved, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord promised to them that love him.

Tools specific to Jas 1:13

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:13

Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God; for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempteth no man:

Tools specific to Jas 1:14

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:14

but each man is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed.

Tools specific to Jas 1:15

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:15

Then the lust, when it hath conceived, beareth sin: and the sin, when it is fullgrown, bringeth forth death.

Tools specific to Jas 1:16

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:16

Be not deceived, my beloved brethren.

Tools specific to Jas 1:17

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:17

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom can be no variation, neither shadow that is cast by turning.

Tools specific to Jas 1:18

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:18

Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

Tools specific to Jas 1:19

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:19

Ye know this, my beloved brethren. But let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:

Tools specific to Jas 1:20

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:20

for the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.

Tools specific to Jas 1:21

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:21

Wherefore putting away all filthiness and overflowing of wickedness, receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.

Tools specific to Jas 1:22

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:22

But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deluding your own selves.

Tools specific to Jas 1:23

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:23

For if any one is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a mirror:

Tools specific to Jas 1:24

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:24

for he beholdeth himself, and goeth away, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

Tools specific to Jas 1:25

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:25

But he that looketh into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and so continueth, being not a hearer that forgetteth but a doer that worketh, this man shall be blessed in his doing.

Tools specific to Jas 1:26

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:26

If any man thinketh himself to be religious, while he bridleth not his tongue but deceiveth his heart, this man’s religion is vain.

Tools specific to Jas 1:27

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:27

Pure religion and undefiled before our God and Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
