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 G1722 who G1290 are scattered abroad G5463 [G5721] , greeting.
2 G3450 My G80 brethren G2233 [G5662] , count it G3956 all G5479 joy G3752 when G4045 [G5632] ye fall G4164 into various G3986 temptations;
3 G1097 [G5723] Knowing G3754 this, that G1383 the trying G5216 of your G4102 faith G2716 [G5736] worketh G5281 patience.
4 G1161 But G2192 0 let G5281 patience G2192 [G5720] have G5046 her perfect G2041 work G2443 , that G5600 [G5753] ye may be G5046 perfect G2532 and G3648 complete G3007 [G5746] , lacking G1722 G3367 nothing.
5 G1161 G1536 If any G5216 of you G3007 [G5743] lacketh G4678 wisdom G154 [G5720] , let him ask G3844 of G2316 God G1325 [G5723] , who giveth G3956 to all G574 men liberally G2532 , and G3679 [G5723] upbraideth G3361 not G2532 ; and G1325 [G5701] it shall be given G846 to him.
6 G1161 But G154 [G5720] let him ask G1722 in G4102 faith G3367 , nothing G1252 [G5734] wavering G1063 . For G1252 [G5734] he that wavereth G1503 [G5758] is like G2830 a wave G2281 of the sea G416 [G5746] driven with the wind G2532 and G4494 [G5746] tossed.
7 G1063 For G3633 0 let G3361 not G1565 that G444 man G3633 [G5737] think G3754 that G2983 [G5695] he shall receive G5100 any thing G3844 from G2962 the Lord.
9 G1161 G2744 0 Let G80 the brother G5011 of low degree G2744 [G5737] rejoice G1722 in G846 that he G5311 is exalted:
10 G1161 But G4145 the rich G1722 , in G846 that he G5014 is made low G3754 : because G5613 as G438 the flower G5528 of the grass G3928 [G5695] he shall pass away.
11 G1063 For G2246 the sun G393 [G5656] hath no sooner risen G4862 with G2742 a burning heat G2532 , but G3583 [G5656] it withereth G5528 the grass G2532 , and G846 its G438 flower G1601 [G5627] falleth G2532 , and G2143 the grace G846 of its G4383 fashion G622 [G5639] perisheth G3779 : so G2532 also G3133 0 shall G4145 the rich man G3133 [G5701] fade away G1722 in G846 his G4197 ways.
12 G3107 Blessed G435 is the man G3739 that G5278 [G5719] endureth G3986 temptation G3754 : for G1384 G1096 [G5637] when he is tried G2983 [G5695] , he shall receive G4735 the crown G2222 of life G3739 , which G2962 the Lord G1861 [G5662] hath promised G25 [G5723] to them that love G846 him.
13 G3004 0 Let G3367 no man G3004 [G5720] say G3985 [G5746] when he is tempted G3754 , G3985 [G5743] I am tempted G575 by G2316 God G1063 : for G2316 God G551 G2076 [G5748] cannot be tempted G2556 with evil G1161 , neither G3985 0 tempteth G846 G3985 [G5719] he G3762 any man:
14 G1161 But G1538 every man G3985 [G5743] is tempted G1828 [G5746] , when he is drawn away G5259 by G2398 his own G1939 lust G2532 , and G1185 [G5746] enticed.
15 G1534 Then G1939 when lust G4815 [G5631] hath conceived G5088 [G5719] , it bringeth forth G266 sin G1161 : and G266 sin G658 [G5685] , when it is finished G616 [G5719] , bringeth forth G2288 death.
17 G3956 Every G18 good G1394 gift G2532 and G3956 every G5046 perfect G1434 gift G2076 [G5748] is G509 from above G2597 [G5723] , and cometh down G575 from G3962 the Father G5457 of lights G3844 , with G3739 whom G1762 [G5748] is G3756 no G3883 variableness G2228 , neither G644 shadow G5157 of turning.
18 G1014 [G5679] Of his own will G616 [G5656] he hath begotten G2248 us G3056 with the word G225 of truth G1519 , that G2248 we G1511 [G5750] should be G5100 a kind G536 of firstfruits G846 of his G2938 creatures.
19 G5620 Therefore G3450 , my G27 beloved G80 brethren G2077 0 , let G3956 every G444 man G2077 [G5749] be G5036 swift G1519 to G191 [G5658] hear G1021 , slow G1519 to G2980 [G5658] speak G1021 , slow G1519 to G3709 wrath:
20 G1063 For G3709 the wrath G435 of man G2716 [G5736] worketh G3756 not G1343 the righteousness G2316 of God.
21 G1352 Therefore G659 [G5642] put away G3956 all G4507 filthiness G2532 and G4050 all that remains G2549 of wickedness G1209 [G5663] , and receive G1722 with G4240 meekness G1721 the engrafted G3056 word G3588 , which G1410 [G5740] is able G4982 [G5658] to save G5216 your G5590 souls.
22 G1161 But G1096 [G5737] be ye G4163 doers G3056 of the word G2532 , and G3361 not G202 hearers G3440 only G3884 [G5740] , deceiving G1438 your own selves.
23 G3754 For G1536 if any G2076 [G5748] is G202 a hearer G3056 of the word G2532 , and G3756 not G4163 a doer G3778 , he G1503 [G5758] is like G435 a man G2657 [G5723] beholding G846 his G1078 natural G4383 face G1722 in G2072 a mirror:
24 G1063 For G2657 [G5656] he beholdeth G1438 himself G2532 , and G565 [G5754] goeth away G2532 , and G2112 immediately G1950 [G5633] forgetteth G3697 what manner of man G2258 [G5713] he was.
25 G1161 But G3879 [G5660] he who looketh G1519 into G5046 the perfect G3551 law G1657 of liberty G2532 , and G3887 [G5660] continueth G3778 in it, he G1096 [G5637] being G3756 not G1953 a forgetful G202 hearer G235 , but G4163 a doer G2041 of the work G3778 , this man G2071 [G5704] shall be G3107 blessed G1722 in G846 his G4162 deed.
26 G1536 If any man G1722 among G5213 you G1380 [G5719] seemeth G1511 [G5750] to be G2357 religious G5468 [G5723] , and bridleth G3361 not G846 his G1100 tongue G235 , but G538 [G5723] deceiveth G846 his own G2588 heart G5127 , this man's G2356 religion G3152 is vain.
27 G2513 Pure G2356 religion G2532 and G283 undefiled G3844 before G2316 God G2532 and G3962 the Father G2076 [G5748] is G3778 this G1980 [G5738] , To visit G3737 the fatherless G2532 and G5503 widows G1722 in G846 their G2347 affliction G5083 [G5721] , and to keep G1438 himself G784 unspotted G575 from G2889 the world.
