1 G2385 James, G1401 a servant G2316 of God G2532 and G2962 of the Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ, G1427 to the twelve G5443 tribes G1290 which are of the Dispersion, G5463 greeting.
2 G2233 Count it G3956 all G5479 joy, G3450 my G80 brethren, G3752 when G4045 ye fall G4164 into manifold G3986 temptations;
3 G1097 Knowing G3754 that G1383 the proving G5216 of your G4102 faith G2716 worketh G5281 patience.
4 G1161 And G5281 let patience G2192 have G5046 its perfect G2041 work, G2443 that G5600 ye may be G5046 perfect G2532 and G3648 entire, G3007 lacking G1722 in G3367 nothing.
5 G1487 But if G5100 any G5216 of you G3007 lacketh G4678 wisdom, G154 let him ask G3844 of G2316 God, G1325 who giveth G3956 to all G574 liberally G2532 and G3679 upbraideth G3361 not; G2532 and G1325 it shall be given G846 him.
6 G1161 But G154 let him ask G1722 in G4102 faith, G3367 nothing G1252 doubting: G1063 for G1252 he that doubteth G1503 is like G2830 the surge G2281 of the sea G416 driven by the wind G2532 and G4494 tossed.
7 G1063 For G3361 let not G1565 that G444 man G3633 think G3754 that G2983 he shall receive G5100 anything G3844 of G2962 the Lord;
9 G1161 But let G80 the brother G5011 of low degree G2744 glory G1722 in G846 his G5311 high estate:
10 G1161 and G4145 the rich, G1722 in G846 that he G5014 is made low: G3754 because G5613 as G438 the flower G5528 of the grass G3928 he shall pass away.
11 G1063 For G2246 the sun G393 ariseth G4862 with G2742 the scorching G2532 wind, and G3583 withereth G5528 the grass: G2532 and G438 the flower G846 thereof G1601 falleth, G2532 and G2143 the grace G4383 of the fashion G846 of it G622 perisheth: G3779 so G2532 also G3133 shall G4145 the rich man G3133 fade away G1722 in G846 his G4197 goings.
12 G3107 Blessed G435 is the man G3739 that G5278 endureth G3986 temptation; G3754 for G1096 when he hath been G1384 approved, G2983 he shall receive G4735 the crown G2222 of life, G3739 which G2962 the Lord G1861 promised G3588 to them G25 that love G846 him.
13 G3367 Let no man G3004 say G3754 when G3985 he is tempted, G3985 I am tempted G575 of G2316 God; G1063 for G2316 God G551 cannot be tempted G2076 G2556 with evil, G846 and he G3985 himself tempteth G1161 no G3762 man:
14 G1161 but G1538 each man G3985 is tempted, G1828 when he is drawn away G5259 by G2398 his own G1939 lust, G2532 and G1185 enticed.
15 G1939 Then the lust, G1534 when G4815 it hath conceived, G5088 beareth G266 sin: G1161 and G266 the sin, G658 when it is fullgrown, G616 bringeth forth G2288 death.
17 G3956 Every G18 good G1394 gift G2532 and G3956 every G5046 perfect G1434 gift G2076 is G509 from above, G2597 coming down G575 from G3962 the Father G5457 of lights, G3844 with G3739 whom G1762 can be G3756 no G3883 variation, G2228 neither G644 shadow G5157 that is cast by turning.
18 G1014 Of his own will G616 he brought G2248 us G3056 forth by the word G1519 of truth, G2248 that we G1511 should be G5100 a kind G536 of firstfruits G846 of his G2938 creatures.
19 G5620 Ye know G3450 this, my G27 beloved G80 brethren. G3956 But let every G444 man G2077 be G5036 swift G1519 to G191 hear, G1021 slow G1519 to G2980 speak, G1021 slow G1519 to G3709 wrath:
20 G1063 for G3709 the wrath G435 of man G2716 worketh G3756 not G1343 the righteousness G2316 of God.
21 G1352 Wherefore G659 putting away G3956 all G4507 filthiness G2532 and G4050 overflowing G2549 of wickedness, G1209 receive G1722 with G4240 meekness G1721 the implanted G3056 word, G3588 which G1410 is able G4982 to save G5216 your G5590 souls.
22 G1161 But G1096 be G4163 ye doers G3056 of the word, G2532 and G3361 not G202 hearers G3440 only, G3884 deluding G1438 your own selves.
23 G3754 For G1487 if G5100 any G202 one is a hearer G3056 of the word G2532 and G3756 not G4163 a doer, G3778 he G2076 is G1503 like unto G435 a man G2657 beholding G846 his G1078 natural G4383 face G1722 in G2072 a mirror:
24 G1063 for G2657 he beholdeth G1438 himself, G2532 and G565 goeth away, G2532 and G2112 straightway G1950 forgetteth G3697 what manner of man G2258 he was.
25 G1161 But G3879 he that looketh G1519 into G5046 the perfect G3551 law, G3551 the law G1657 of liberty, G2532 and G3887 so continueth, G1096 being G3756 not G202 a hearer G1953 that forgetteth G235 but G4163 a doer G2041 that worketh, G3778 this man G2071 shall be G3107 blessed G1722 in G846 his G4162 doing.
26 G1487 If G5100 any man G1722 G5213 G1380 thinketh G1511 himself to be G2357 religious, G5468 while he bridleth G3361 not G846 his G1100 tongue G235 but G538 deceiveth G846 his G2588 heart, G5127 this man's G2356 religion G3152 is vain.
