James 11:3 works (g-8) Works out as an effect. see ver. 20; Phil. 2.12.1:3 works (g-8) Works out as an effect. see ver. 20; Phil. 2.12. 1:5 freely (h-18) As 'simplicity,' Rom. 12.8. Of men we might say 'unaffectedly,' 'with a readiness of heart which does not make a great matter of it.' the want is there, and the heart answers without a second thought. I had thought of 'readily,' but it does not give the thought of simplicity without a second thought, as much as 'freely.' 1:8 man, (a-5) 'Double-minded man' is an apposition, not with 'that man,' but with 'he that doubts' (ver. 6); and ver. 7 is practically a parenthesis. I do not think the sense of ver. 8 bears a direct connection with ver. 7; it is rather a moral explanation of the figure of ver. 6. The style of James is characterized by these proverbial sentences. see ver. 20 as an example. 1:17 gift (b-3) gift (b-7) Dosis, then dorema; the words are nearly the same. strictly dosis is 'the giving,' dorema 'the thing freely given.' In English 'gift' is both the giving and the thing given. down (c-9) Lit. 'is coming down;' its true character. see ch. 3.16. 1:18 will (d-5) 'Having so purposed' or 'willed it.' It was the fruit of his own mind, and so a free gift. 1:20 work (e-6) 'Work out as an effect,' as ver. 3. see Rom. 7.13. 1:25 view (f-6) Lit. 'stoops down to look into,' as Luke 24.12; John 20.5. 1:26 himself (g-5) Or 'seem.' see 1Cor. 10.12. 1:27 Father (h-9) Or 'God the Father,' Lit. 'God and Father.'
