Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:1 - Ya`akov, a servant of God and of the Lord Yeshua the Messiah, to the twelve tribes which are in the Diaspora: Greetings.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:2 - Count it all joy, my brothers, when you fall into various temptations,
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:3 - knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:4 - Let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:5 - But 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.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:6 - But let him ask in faith, without any doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, driven by the wind and tossed.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:7 - For let that man not think that he will receive anything from the Lord.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:8 - He is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:9 - But let the brother in humble circumstances glory in his high position;
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:10 - and the rich, in that he is made humble, because like the flower in the grass, he will pass away.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:11 - For the sun arises with the scorching wind, and withers the grass, and the flower in it falls, and the beauty of its appearance perishes. So also will the rich man fade away in his pursuits.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 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 promised to those who love him.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:13 - Let no man say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God," for God can't be tempted by evil, and he himself tempts no one.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:14 - But each one is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:15 - Then the lust, when it has conceived, bears sin; and the sin, when it is full grown, brings forth death.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:16 - Don't be deceived, my beloved brothers.
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, nor turning shadow.
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 first fruits of his creatures.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:19 - So, then, my beloved brothers, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger;
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:20 - for the anger of man doesn't produce the righteousness of God.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:21 - Therefore, putting away all filthiness and overflowing of wickedness, receive with humility the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:22 - But be doers of the word, and not only hearers, deluding your own selves.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:23 - For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man beholding his natural face in a mirror;
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:24 - for he sees himself, and goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:25 - But he who looks into the perfect law, the law of freedom, and continues, not being a hearer who forgets but a doer of the work, this man will be blessed in what he does.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:26 - If anyone among you thinks himself to be religious while he doesn't bridle his tongue, but deceives his heart, this man's religion is worthless.
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 unstained by the world.
