James 11 ▼ James, a ▼ servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are of the Dispersion, ▼
▼ 3greeting. ▼
▼ 1) Or Jacob 2) Gr bondservant 3) Gr wisheth joy2 Count it all joy, my brethren, when ye fall into manifold ▼ temptations; ▼
▼ 1) Or trials3 Knowing that the proving of your faith worketh ▼ patience. ▼
▼ 1) Or stedfastness4 And let ▼ patience have its perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, lacking in nothing. ▼
▼ 1) Or stedfastness5 But if any of you lacketh wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth to all liberally and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing doubting: for he that doubteth is like the surge of the sea driven by the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think ▼ that he shall receive anything of the Lord; ▼
▼ 1) Or that a doubleminded man, unstable in all his ways, shall receive anything of the Lord8 a doubleminded man, unstable in all his ways. 9 But let the brother of low degree glory in his high estate: 10 and the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away. 11 For the sun ariseth with the scorching wind, and withereth the grass: and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his goings. 12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation; for when he hath been approved, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord promised to them that love him. 13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted ▼ of God; for God ▼ cannot be tempted with ▼
▼ 3evil, and he himself tempteth no man: ▼
▼ 1) Gr from 2) Or is untried in evil 3) Gr evil things14 but each man is ▼ tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed. ▼
▼ 1) Or tempted by his own lust, being drawn away by it, and enticed15 Then the lust, when it hath conceived, beareth sin: and the sin, when it is fullgrown, bringeth forth death. 16 Be not deceived, my beloved brethren. 17 Every good ▼ gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom can be no variation, neither shadow that is cast by turning. ▼
▼ 1) Or giving18 Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. 19 ▼ Ye know this , my beloved brethren. But let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: ▼
▼ 1) Or Know ye20 for the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. 21 Wherefore putting away all filthiness and overflowing of ▼ wickedness, receive with meekness the ▼ implanted word, which is able to save your souls. ▼
▼ 1) Or malice 2) Or inborn22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deluding your own selves. 23 For if any one is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding ▼ his natural face in a mirror: ▼
▼ 1) Gr the face of his birth24 for he beholdeth himself, and goeth away, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25 But he that looketh into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and so continueth, being not a hearer that forgetteth but a doer that worketh, this man shall be blessed in his doing. 26 If any man ▼ thinketh himself to be religious, while he bridleth not his tongue but deceiveth his heart, this man’s religion is vain. ▼
▼ 1) Or seemeth to be27 Pure religion and undefiled before our God and Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
