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 in the Dispersion: G5463 Greetings.
2 G2233 Count it G3956 all G5479 joy, G3450 my G80 brothers, G3752 when G4045 you fall G4164 into various G3986 temptations,
3 G1097 knowing G3754 that G1383 the testing G5216 of your G4102 faith G2716 produces G5281 endurance.
4 G1161 G5281 Let endurance G2192 have G5046 its perfect G2041 work, G2443 that G5600 you may be G5046 perfect G2532 and G3648 complete, G3007 lacking G1722 in G3367 nothing.
5 G1487 But if G5100 any G5216 of you G3007 lacks G4678 wisdom, G154 let him ask G3844 of G2316 God, G1325 who gives G3956 to all G574 liberally G2532 and G3361 without G3679 reproach; G2532 and G1325 it will be given G846 to him.
6 G1161 But G154 let him ask G1722 in G4102 faith, G3367 without G1252 any doubting, G1063 for G1252 he who doubts G1503 is like G2830 a wave G2281 of the sea, G416 driven by the wind G2532 and G4494 tossed.
7 G1063 For G1565 let that G444 man G3361 not G3633 think G3754 that G2983 he will receive G5100 anything G3844 from G2962 the Lord.
9 G1161 But G80 let the brother G5011 in humble circumstances G2744 glory G1722 in G846 his G5311 high position;
10 G1161 and G4145 the rich, G1722 in G846 that he G5014 is made humble, G3754 because G5613 like G438 the flower G5528 in the grass, G3928 he will pass away.
11 G1063 For G2246 the sun G393 arises G4862 with G2742 the scorching G2532 wind, and G3583 withers G5528 the grass, G2532 and G438 the flower G846 in it G1601 falls, G2532 and G2143 the beauty G846 of its G4383 appearance G622 perishes. G3779 So G2532 also G3133 will G4145 the rich man G3133 fade away G1722 in G846 his G4197 pursuits.
12 G3107 Blessed G435 is the man G3739 who G5278 endures G3986 temptation, G3754 for G1096 when he has been G1384 approved, G2983 he will receive G4735 the crown G2222 of life, G3739 which G2962 the Lord G1861 promised G3588 to those G25 who love G846 him.
13 G3367 Let no man G3004 say G3754 when G3985 he is tempted, G3985 "I am tempted G575 by G2316 God," G1063 for G2316 God G551 can't be tempted G2076 G2556 by evil, G846 and he G3985 himself tempts G1161 no G3762 one.
14 G1161 But G1538 each one 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 has conceived, G5088 bears G266 sin; G1161 and G266 the sin, G658 when it is full grown, G616 brings 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, G3756 nor G5157 turning G644 shadow.
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 first fruits G846 of his G2938 creatures.
19 G5620 So, then, G3450 my G27 beloved G80 brothers, G3956 let every G444 man G2077 be G5036 swift G1519 to G191 hear, G1021 slow G1519 to G2980 speak, G1021 and slow G1519 to G3709 anger;
20 G1063 for G3709 the anger G435 of man G3756 doesn't G2716 produce G1343 the righteousness G2316 of God.
21 G1352 Therefore, G659 putting away G3956 all G4507 filthiness G2532 and G4050 overflowing G2549 of wickedness, G1209 receive G1722 with G4240 humility G1721 the implanted G3056 word, G3588 which G1410 is able G4982 to save G5216 your G5590 souls.
22 G1161 But G1096 be G4163 doers G3056 of the word, G2532 and G3361 not G3440 only G202 hearers, G3884 deluding G1438 your own selves.
23 G3754 For G1487 if G5100 anyone G202 is a hearer G3056 of the word G2532 and G3756 not G4163 a doer, G3778 he G2076 is G1503 like G435 a man G2657 looking G846 at his G1078 natural G4383 face G1722 in G2072 a mirror;
24 G1063 for G2657 he sees G1438 himself, G2532 and G565 goes away, G2532 and G2112 immediately G1950 forgets G3697 what kind of man G2258 he was.
25 G1161 But G3879 he who looks G1519 into G5046 the perfect G3551 law G1657 of freedom, G2532 and G3887 continues, G3756 not G1096 being G202 a hearer G3778 who G1953 forgets, G235 but G4163 a doer G2041 of the work, G3778 this man G2071 will be G3107 blessed G1722 in G846 what he G4162 does.
26 G1487 If G5100 anyone G1722 among G5213 you G1380 thinks G1511 himself to be G2357 religious G3361 while he doesn't G5468 bridle G846 his G1100 tongue, G235 but G538 deceives G846 his G2588 heart, G5127 this man's G2356 religion G3152 is worthless.
