Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:1 - James, a bondservant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,
To the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad:
Greetings.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:2 - My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials,

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:3 - knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:4 - But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:5 - 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, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:7 - For let not that man suppose 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 - Let the lowly brother glory in his exaltation,

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:10 - but the rich in his humiliation, because as a flower of the field he will pass away.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:11 - For no sooner has the sun risen with a burning heat than it withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beautiful appearance perishes. So the rich man also will 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 has 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, nor does He Himself tempt anyone.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:15 - Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:16 - Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:17 - Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:18 - Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:19 - So then,[fn] my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath;

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:20 - for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:21 - Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:22 - But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:23 - For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror;

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:24 - for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:25 - But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:26 - If anyone among you[fn] thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:27 - Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
