1:1 James [G2385] , a servant [G1401] of God [G2316] and [G2532] of the Lord [G2962] Jesus [G2424] Christ [G5547] , to the twelve [G1427] tribes [G5443] which [G1722] are scattered abroad [G1290] , greeting [G5463] .
1:2 My [G3450] brethren [G80] , count it [G2233] all [G3956] joy [G5479] when [G3752] ye fall [G4045] into divers [G4164] temptations [G3986] ;(temptations: or, trials)
1:3 Knowing [G1097] [this], that [G3754] the trying [G1383] of your [G5216] faith [G4102] worketh [G2716] patience [G5281] .
1:4 But [G1161] let [G2192] patience [G5281] have [G2192] [her] perfect [G5046] work [G2041] , that [G2443] ye may be [G5600] perfect [G5046] and [G2532] entire [G3648] , wanting [G3007] nothing [G1722] [G3367] .
1:5 [G1161] If any [G1536] of you [G5216] lack [G3007] wisdom [G4678] , let him ask [G154] of [G3844] God [G2316] , that giveth [G1325] to all [G3956] [men] liberally [G574] , and [G2532] upbraideth [G3679] not [G3361] ; and [G2532] it shall be given [G1325] him [G846] .
1:6 But [G1161] let him ask [G154] in [G1722] faith [G4102] , nothing [G3367] wavering [G1252] . For [G1063] he that wavereth [G1252] is like [G1503] a wave [G2830] of the sea [G2281] driven with the wind [G416] and [G2532] tossed [G4494] .
1:7 For [G1063] let [G3633] not [G3361] that [G1565] man [G444] think [G3633] that [G3754] he shall receive [G2983] any thing [G5100] of [G3844] the Lord [G2962] .
1:8 A double minded [G1374] man [G435] [is] unstable [G182] in [G1722] all [G3956] his [G846] ways [G3598] .
1:9 [G1161] Let [G2744] the brother [G80] of low degree [G5011] rejoice [G2744] in [G1722] that he [G846] is exalted [G5311] :(rejoice: or, glory)(rejoice: or, glory)
1:10 But [G1161] the rich [G4145] , in [G1722] that he [G846] is made low [G5014] : because [G3754] as [G5613] the flower [G438] of the grass [G5528] he shall pass away [G3928] .
1:11 For [G1063] the sun [G2246] is no sooner risen [G393] with [G4862] a burning heat [G2742] , but [G2532] it withereth [G3583] the grass [G5528] , and [G2532] the flower [G438] thereof [G846] falleth [G1601] , and [G2532] the grace [G2143] of the fashion [G4383] of it [G846] perisheth [G622] : so [G3779] also [G2532] shall [G3133] the rich man [G4145] fade away [G3133] in [G1722] his [G846] ways [G4197] .
1:12 Blessed [G3107] [is] the man [G435] that [G3739] endureth [G5278] temptation [G3986] : for [G3754] when he is tried [G1384] [G1096] , he shall receive [G2983] the crown [G4735] of life [G2222] , which [G3739] the Lord [G2962] hath promised [G1861] to them that love [G25] him [G846] .
1:13 Let [G3004] no man [G3367] say [G3004] when he is tempted [G3985] , [G3754] I am tempted [G3985] of [G575] God [G2316] : for [G1063] God [G2316] cannot be tempted [G551] [G2076] with evil [G2556] , neither [G1161] tempteth [G3985] he [G846] [G3985] any man [G3762] :(evil: or, evils)
1:14 But [G1161] every man [G1538] is tempted [G3985] , when he is drawn away [G1828] of [G5259] his own [G2398] lust [G1939] , and [G2532] enticed [G1185] .
1:15 Then [G1534] when lust [G1939] hath conceived [G4815] , it bringeth forth [G5088] sin [G266] : and [G1161] sin [G266] , when it is finished [G658] , bringeth forth [G616] death [G2288] .
1:16 Do [G4105] not [G3361] err [G4105] , my [G3450] beloved [G27] brethren [G80] .
1:17 Every [G3956] good [G18] gift [G1394] and [G2532] every [G3956] perfect [G5046] gift [G1434] is [G2076] from above [G509] , and cometh down [G2597] from [G575] the Father [G3962] of lights [G5457] , with [G3844] whom [G3739] is [G1762] no [G3756] variableness [G3883] , neither [G2228] shadow [G644] of turning [G5157] .
1:18 Of his own will [G1014] begat he [G616] us [G2248] with the word [G3056] of truth [G225] , that [G1519] we [G2248] should be [G1511] a kind [G5100] of firstfruits [G536] of his [G846] creatures [G2938] .
1:19 Wherefore [G5620] , my [G3450] beloved [G27] brethren [G80] , let [G2077] every [G3956] man [G444] be [G2077] swift [G5036] to [G1519] hear [G191] , slow [G1021] to [G1519] speak [G2980] , slow [G1021] to [G1519] wrath [G3709] :
1:20 For [G1063] the wrath [G3709] of man [G435] worketh [G2716] not [G3756] the righteousness [G1343] of God [G2316] .
1:21 Wherefore [G1352] lay apart [G659] all [G3956] filthiness [G4507] and [G2532] superfluity [G4050] of naughtiness [G2549] , and receive [G1209] with [G1722] meekness [G4240] the engrafted [G1721] word [G3056] , which [G3588] is able [G1410] to save [G4982] your [G5216] souls [G5590] .
1:22 But [G1161] be ye [G1096] doers [G4163] of the word [G3056] , and [G2532] not [G3361] hearers [G202] only [G3440] , deceiving [G3884] your own selves [G1438] .
1:23 For [G3754] if any [G1536] be [G2076] a hearer [G202] of the word [G3056] , and [G2532] not [G3756] a doer [G4163] , he [G3778] is like [G1503] unto a man [G435] beholding [G2657] his [G846] natural [G1078] face [G4383] in [G1722] a glass [G2072] :
1:24 For [G1063] he beholdeth [G2657] himself [G1438] , and [G2532] goeth his way [G565] , and [G2532] straightway [G2112] forgetteth [G1950] what manner of man [G3697] he was [G2258] .
1:25 But [G1161] whoso looketh [G3879] into [G1519] the perfect [G5046] law [G3551] of liberty [G1657] , and [G2532] continueth [G3887] [therein], he [G3778] being [G1096] not [G3756] a forgetful [G1953] hearer [G202] , but [G235] a doer [G4163] of the work [G2041] , this man [G3778] shall be [G2071] blessed [G3107] in [G1722] his [G846] deed [G4162] .(deed: or, doing)
1:26 If any man [G1536] among [G1722] you [G5213] seem [G1380] to be [G1511] religious [G2357] , and bridleth [G5468] not [G3361] his [G846] tongue [G1100] , but [G235] deceiveth [G538] his own [G846] heart [G2588] , this man's [G5127] religion [G2356] [is] vain [G3152] .
1:27 Pure [G2513] religion [G2356] and [G2532] undefiled [G283] before [G3844] God [G2316] and [G2532] the Father [G3962] is [G2076] this [G3778] , To visit [G1980] the fatherless [G3737] and [G2532] widows [G5503] in [G1722] their [G846] affliction [G2347] , [and] to keep [G5083] himself [G1438] unspotted [G784] from [G575] the world [G2889] .
