James 2:15-2615 a If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, 16 b and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good ▼
▼Or benefitis that? 17So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. 18But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith d apart from your works, and I will show you my faith e by my works. 19 f You believe that God is one; you do well. Even g the demons believe—and shudder! 20Do you want to be shown, you foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless? 21 h Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son Isaac on the altar? 22You see that i faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed j by his works; 23and the Scripture was fulfilled that says k “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a l friend of God. 24You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone. 25And in the same way was not also m Rahab the prostitute justified by works n when she received the messengers and sent them out by another way? 26For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.
