Tools specific to Jas 1:1

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:1

[fn]James, a bond-servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes who are [fn]dispersed abroad: Greetings.

Tools specific to Jas 1:2

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:2

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various [fn]trials,

Tools specific to Jas 1:3

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:3

knowing that the testing of your faith produces [fn]endurance.

Tools specific to Jas 1:4

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:4

And let [fn]endurance have its perfect [fn]result, so that you may be [fn]perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

Tools specific to Jas 1:5

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:5

But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and [fn]without reproach, and it will be given to him.

Tools specific to Jas 1:6

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:6

But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind.

Tools specific to Jas 1:7

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:7

For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord,

Tools specific to Jas 1:8

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:8

being a [fn]double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

Tools specific to Jas 1:9

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:9

But the [fn]brother of humble circumstances is to glory in his high position;

Tools specific to Jas 1:10

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:10

and the rich man is to glory in his humiliation, because like [fn]flowering grass he will pass away.

Tools specific to Jas 1:11

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:11

For the sun rises with [fn]a scorching wind and withers the grass; and its flower falls off and the beauty of its appearance is destroyed; so too the rich man in the midst of his pursuits will fade away.

Tools specific to Jas 1:12

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:12

Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has [fn]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

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:13

Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted [fn]by God”; for God cannot be tempted [fn]by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone.

Tools specific to Jas 1:14

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:14

But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust.

Tools specific to Jas 1:15

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:15

Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin [fn]is accomplished, it brings forth death.

Tools specific to Jas 1:16

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:16

Do not be [fn]deceived, my beloved brethren.

Tools specific to Jas 1:17

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:17

Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or [fn]shifting shadow.

Tools specific to Jas 1:18

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:18

In the exercise of His will He brought us forth by the word of truth, so that we would be [fn]a kind of first fruits [fn]among His creatures.

Tools specific to Jas 1:19

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:19

[fn]This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger;

Tools specific to Jas 1:20

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:20

for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God.

Tools specific to Jas 1:21

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:21

Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all [fn]that remains of wickedness, in [fn]humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls.

Tools specific to Jas 1:22

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:22

But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.

Tools specific to Jas 1:23

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:23

For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his [fn]natural face in a mirror;

Tools specific to Jas 1:24

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:24

for once he has looked at himself and gone away, [fn]he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was.

Tools specific to Jas 1:25

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:25

But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but [fn]an effectual doer, this man will be blessed in [fn]what he does.

Tools specific to Jas 1:26

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:26

If anyone thinks himself to be religious, and yet does not [fn]bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is worthless.

Tools specific to Jas 1:27

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 1:27

Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained [fn]by the world.
