Tools specific to Jas 2:1

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:1

My brethren, do not hold your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with an attitude of personal favoritism.

Tools specific to Jas 2:2

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:2

For if a man comes into your [fn]assembly with a gold ring and dressed in [fn]fine clothes, and there also comes in a poor man in dirty clothes,

Tools specific to Jas 2:3

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:3

and you [fn]pay special attention to the one who is wearing the fine clothes, and say, “You sit here in a good place,” and you say to the poor man, “You stand over there, or sit down by my footstool,”

Tools specific to Jas 2:4

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:4

have you not made distinctions among yourselves, and become judges with evil [fn]motives?

Tools specific to Jas 2:5

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:5

Listen, my beloved brethren: did not God choose the poor [fn]of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him?

Tools specific to Jas 2:6

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:6

But you have dishonored the poor man. Is it not the rich who oppress you and [fn]personally drag you into [fn]court?

Tools specific to Jas 2:7

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:7

Do they not blaspheme the fair name [fn]by which you have been called?

Tools specific to Jas 2:8

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:8

If, however, you are fulfilling the [fn]royal law according to the Scripture, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF,” you are doing well.

Tools specific to Jas 2:9

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:9

But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the [fn]law as transgressors.

Tools specific to Jas 2:10

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:10

For whoever keeps the whole [fn]law and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all.

Tools specific to Jas 2:11

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:11

For He who said, “DO NOT COMMIT ADULTERY,” also said, “DO NOT COMMIT MURDER.” Now if you do not commit adultery, but do commit murder, you have become a transgressor of the [fn]law.

Tools specific to Jas 2:12

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:12

So speak and so act as those who 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 merciless to one who has shown no mercy; mercy [fn]triumphs over judgment.

Tools specific to Jas 2:14

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:14

What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can [fn]that faith save him?

Tools specific to Jas 2:15

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:15

If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food,

Tools specific to Jas 2:16

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:16

and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, [fn]be warmed and be filled,” and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that?

Tools specific to Jas 2:17

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:17

Even so faith, if it has no works, is [fn]dead, being by itself.

Tools specific to Jas 2:18

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:18

But someone [fn]may well say, “You have faith and I have works; show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works.”

Tools specific to Jas 2:19

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:19

You believe that [fn]God is one. You do well; the demons also believe, and shudder.

Tools specific to Jas 2:20

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:20

But are you willing to recognize, you foolish fellow, that faith without works is useless?

Tools specific to Jas 2:21

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:21

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

Tools specific to Jas 2:22

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:22

You see that faith was working with his works, and [fn]as a result of the works, faith was [fn]perfected;

Tools specific to Jas 2:23

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:23

and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “AND ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS,” and he was called the friend of God.

Tools specific to Jas 2:24

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:24

You see that a man is justified by works and not by faith alone.

Tools specific to Jas 2:25

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:25

In the same way, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out by another way?

Tools specific to Jas 2:26

Unchecked Copy Box Jas 2:26

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