Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:1 - From James, a slave of God and the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes dispersed abroad. Greetings!

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:2 - My brothers and sisters, consider it nothing but joy when you fall into all sorts of trials,

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:3 - because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:4 - And let endurance have its perfect effect, so that you will be perfect and complete, not deficient in anything.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:5 - But if anyone is deficient in wisdom, he should ask God, who gives to all generously and without reprimand, and it will be given to him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:6 - But he must ask in faith without doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed around by the wind.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:7 - For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord,

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:8 - since he is a double-minded individual, unstable in all his ways.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:9 - Now the believer of humble means should take pride in his high position.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:10 - But the rich person's pride should be in his humiliation, because he will pass away like a wildflower in the meadow.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:11 - For the sun rises with its heat and dries up the meadow; the petal of the flower falls off and its beauty is lost forever. So also the rich person in the midst of his pursuits will wither away.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:12 - Happy is the one who endures testing, because when he has proven to be genuine, he will receive the crown of life that God promised to those who love him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:13 - Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God," for God cannot be tempted by evil, and he himself tempts no one.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:14 - But each one is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desires.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:15 - Then when desire conceives, it gives birth to sin, and when sin is full grown, it gives birth to death.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:16 - Do not be led astray, my dear brothers and sisters.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:17 - All generous giving and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or the slightest hint of change.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:18 - By his sovereign plan he gave us birth through the message of truth, that we would be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:19 - Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters! Let every person be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:20 - For human anger does not accomplish God's righteousness.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:21 - So put away all filth and evil excess and humbly welcome the message implanted within you, which is able to save your souls.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:22 - But be sure you live out the message and do not merely listen to it and so deceive yourselves.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:23 - For if someone merely listens to the message and does not live it out, he is like someone who gazes at his own face in a mirror.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:24 - For he gazes at himself and then goes out and immediately forgets what sort of person he was.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:25 - But the one who peers into the perfect law of liberty and fixes his attention there, and does not become a forgetful listener but one who lives it out - he will be blessed in what he does.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:26 - If someone thinks he is religious yet does not bridle his tongue, and so deceives his heart, his religion is futile.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:27 - Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their misfortune and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
