Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:1 - James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are of the Dispersion, greeting.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:2 - Count it all joy, my brethren, when ye fall into manifold temptations;
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:3 - knowing that the proving of your faith worketh patience.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:4 - And let patience have its perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, lacking in nothing.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 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.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 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.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:7 - For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord;
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:8 - a doubleminded man, unstable in all his ways.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:9 - But let the brother of low degree glory in his high estate:
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:10 - and the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 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.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 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.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 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:
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:14 - but each man is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:15 - Then the lust, when it hath conceived, beareth sin: and the sin, when it is fullgrown, bringeth forth death.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:16 - Be not deceived, my beloved brethren.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 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.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 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.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:19 - Ye know this, my beloved brethren. But let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:20 - for the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:21 - Wherefore putting away all filthiness and overflowing of wickedness, receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:22 - But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deluding your own selves.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 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:
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:24 - for he beholdeth himself, and goeth away, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 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.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 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.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 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.
