Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:1 - My brethren, hold not, in respect of persons, the faith of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:2 - for if there may come into your synagogue a man with gold ring, in gay raiment, and there may come in also a poor man in vile raiment,

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:3 - and ye may look upon him bearing the gay raiment, and may say to him, 'Thou -- sit thou here well,' and to the poor man may say, 'Thou -- stand thou there, or, Sit thou here under my footstool,' --

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:4 - ye did not judge fully in yourselves, and did become ill-reasoning judges.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:5 - Hearken, my brethren beloved, did not God choose the poor of this world, rich in faith, and heirs of the reign that He promised to those loving Him?

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:6 - and ye did dishonour the poor one; do not the rich oppress you and themselves draw you to judgment-seats;

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:7 - do they not themselves speak evil of the good name that was called upon you?

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:8 - If, indeed, royal law ye complete, according to the Writing, 'Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself,' -- ye do well;

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:9 - and if ye accept persons, sin ye do work, being convicted by the law as transgressors;

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:10 - for whoever the whole law shall keep, and shall stumble in one point, he hath become guilty of all;

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:11 - for He who is saying, 'Thou mayest not commit adultery,' said also, 'Thou mayest do no murder;' and if thou shalt not commit adultery, and shalt commit murder, thou hast become a transgressor of law;

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:12 - so speak ye and so do, as about by a law of liberty to be judged,

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:13 - for the judgment without kindness is to him not having done kindness, and exult doth kindness over judgment.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:14 - What is the profit, my brethren, if faith, any one may speak of having, and works he may not have? is that faith able to save him?

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:15 - and if a brother or sister may be naked, and may be destitute of the daily food,

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:16 - and any one of you may say to them, 'Depart ye in peace, be warmed, and be filled,' and may not give to them the things needful for the body, what is the profit?

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

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:18 - But say may some one, Thou hast faith, and I have works, shew me thy faith out of thy works, and I will shew thee out of my works my faith:

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:19 - thou -- thou dost believe that God is one; thou dost well, and the demons believe, and they shudder!

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:20 - And dost thou wish to know, O vain man, that the faith apart from the works is dead?

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:21 - Abraham our father -- was not he declared righteous out of works, having brought up Isaac his son upon the altar?

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:22 - dost thou see that the faith was working with his works, and out of the works the faith was perfected?

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:23 - and fulfilled was the Writing that is saying, 'And Abraham did believe God, and it was reckoned to him -- to righteousness;' and, 'Friend of God' he was called.

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:24 - Ye see, then, that out of works is man declared righteous, and not out of faith only;

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:25 - and in like manner also Rahab the harlot -- was she not out of works declared righteous, having received the messengers, and by another way having sent forth?

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 2:26 - for as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also the faith apart from the works is dead.
