Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:1 - My brethren, do not hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with partiality.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:2 - For if there should come into your assembly a man with gold rings, in fine apparel, and there should also come in a poor man in filthy clothes,

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:3 - and you pay attention to the one wearing the fine clothes and say to him, “You sit here in a good place,” and say to the poor man, “You stand there,” or, “Sit here at my footstool,”

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:4 - have you not shown partiality among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts?

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:5 - Listen, my beloved brethren: Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him?

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:6 - But you have dishonored the poor man. Do not the rich oppress you and drag you into the courts?

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:7 - Do they not blaspheme that noble name by which you are called?

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:8 - If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,”[fn] you do well;

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:9 - but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:10 - For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:11 - For He who said, “Do not commit adultery,”[fn] also said, “Do not murder.”[fn] Now if you do not commit adultery, but you do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:12 - So speak and so do as those who will be judged by the law of liberty.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:13 - For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:14 - What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:15 - If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food,

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:16 - and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit?

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:17 - Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:18 - But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your[fn] works, and I will show you my faith by my[fn] works.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:19 - You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble!

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:20 - But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:21 - Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar?

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:22 - Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:23 - And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.”[fn] And he was called the friend of God.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:24 - You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:25 - Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way?

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:26 - For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
