Tools specific to Jas 2:1

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:1

My brethren, do not have the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, Lord of glory, with respect of persons:

Tools specific to Jas 2:2

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:2

for if there come unto your synagogue a man with a gold ring in splendid apparel, and a poor man also come in in vile apparel,

Tools specific to Jas 2:3

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:3

and ye look upon him who wears the splendid apparel, and say, Do thou sit here well, and say to the poor, Do thou stand there, or sit here under my footstool:

Tools specific to Jas 2:4

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:4

have ye not made a difference among yourselves, and become judges having evil thoughts?

Tools specific to Jas 2:5

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:5

Hear, my beloved brethren: Has not God chosen the poor as to the world, rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to them that love him?

Tools specific to Jas 2:6

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:6

But *ye* have despised the poor man. Do not the rich oppress you, and do not *they* drag you before the tribunals?

Tools specific to Jas 2:7

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:7

And do not *they* blaspheme the excellent name which has been called upon you?

Tools specific to Jas 2:8

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:8

If indeed ye keep the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well.

Tools specific to Jas 2:9

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:9

But if ye have respect of persons, ye commit sin, being convicted by the law as transgressors.

Tools specific to Jas 2:10

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:10

For whoever shall keep the whole law and shall offend in one point, he has come under the guilt of breaking all.

Tools specific to Jas 2:11

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:11

For he who said, Thou shalt not commit adultery, said also, Thou shalt not kill. Now if thou dost not commit adultery, but killest, thou art become transgressor of the law.

Tools specific to Jas 2:12

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:12

So speak ye, and so act, as those that are to be judged by the law of liberty;

Tools specific to Jas 2:13

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:13

for judgment will be without mercy to him that has shewn no mercy. Mercy glories over judgment.

Tools specific to Jas 2:14

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:14

What is the profit, my brethren, if any one say he have faith, but have not works? can faith save him?

Tools specific to Jas 2:15

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:15

Now if a brother or a sister is naked and destitute of daily food,

Tools specific to Jas 2:16

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:16

and one from amongst you say to them, Go in peace, be warmed and filled; but give not to them the needful things for the body, what is the profit?

Tools specific to Jas 2:17

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:17

So also faith, if it have not works, is dead by itself.

Tools specific to Jas 2:18

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:18

But some one will say, *Thou* hast faith and *I* have works. Shew me thy faith without works, and *I* from my works will shew thee my faith.

Tools specific to Jas 2:19

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:19

*Thou* believest that God is one. Thou doest well. The demons even believe, and tremble.

Tools specific to Jas 2:20

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:20

But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

Tools specific to Jas 2:21

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:21

Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?

Tools specific to Jas 2:22

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:22

Thou seest that faith wrought with his works, and that by works faith was perfected.

Tools specific to Jas 2:23

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:23

And the scripture was fulfilled which says, Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness, and he was called Friend of God.

Tools specific to Jas 2:24

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:24

Ye see that a man is justified on the principle of works, and not on the principle of faith only.

Tools specific to Jas 2:25

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:25

But was not in like manner also Rahab the harlot justified on the principle of works, when she had received the messengers and put them forth by another way?

Tools specific to Jas 2:26

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:26

For as the body without a spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.
