(Jam 1:1) James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.
(Jam 1:2) My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
(Jam 1:3) Knowing {this}, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
(Jam 1:4) But let patience have {her} perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
(Jam 1:5) If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all {men} liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
(Jam 1:6) But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
(Jam 1:7) For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
(Jam 1:8) A double minded man {is} unstable in all his ways.
(Jam 1:9) Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:
(Jam 1:10) But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.
(Jam 1:11) For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it 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 ways.
(Jam 1:12) Blessed {is} the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
(Jam 1:13) Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
(Jam 1:14) But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
(Jam 1:15) Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
(Jam 1:16) Do not err, my beloved brethren.
(Jam 1:17) Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
(Jam 1:18) Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
(Jam 1:19) Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
(Jam 1:20) For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
(Jam 1:21) Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
(Jam 1:22) But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
(Jam 1:23) For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
(Jam 1:24) For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
(Jam 1:25) But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth {therein}, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
(Jam 1:26) If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion {is} vain.
(Jam 1:27) Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, {and} to keep himself unspotted from the world.
