1 G2385 James, G1401 a servant G2316 of God G2962 and of the Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ, G1427 to the twelve G5443 tribes G3739 which G1290 are scattered G1290 abroad, G5463 greeting.
2 G80 My brothers, G2233 count G3956 it all G5479 joy G3752 when G4045 you fall G4164 into divers G3986 temptations;
4 G5281 But let patience G2192 have G5046 her perfect G2041 work, G5046 that you may be perfect G3648 and entire, G3007 wanting G3367 nothing.
5 G1487 If G5100 any G3007 of you lack G4678 wisdom, G154 let him ask G2316 of God, G1325 that gives G3956 to all G574 men liberally, G3679 and upbraides G1325 not; and it shall be given him.
6 G154 But let him ask G4102 in faith, G3367 nothing G1252 wavering. G1252 For he that wavers G1503 is like G2830 a wave G2281 of the sea G416 driven G416 with the wind G4494 and tossed.
7 G444 For let not that man G3633 think G2983 that he shall receive G5100 any G2962 thing of the Lord.
10 G4145 But the rich, G5014 in that he is made G5014 low: G3754 because G438 as the flower G5528 of the grass G3928 he shall pass away.
11 G2246 For the sun G393 is no sooner risen G2742 with a burning G2742 heat, G3583 but it wither G5528 the grass, G438 and the flower G846 thereof G1601 falls, G2143 and the grace G4383 of the fashion G622 of it perishes: G3779 so G2532 also G4145 shall the rich G3133 man fade G4197 away in his ways.
12 G3107 Blessed G435 is the man G5278 that endures G3986 temptation: G1384 for when he is tried, G2983 he shall receive G4735 the crown G2222 of life, G3739 which G2962 the Lord G1861 has promised G25 to them that love him.
13 G3367 Let no G3367 man G3004 say G3985 when he is tempted, G3985 I am tempted G2316 of God: G2316 for God G551 cannot G551 be tempted G2556 with evil, G2582 neither G3762 G3985 tempts G3762 he any G3762 man:
14 G1538 But every G3985 man is tempted, G1828 when he is drawn G2398 away of his own G1939 lust, G1185 and enticed.
15 G1534 Then G1939 when lust G4815 has conceived, G616 it brings G616 forth G266 sin: G266 and sin, G658 when it is finished, G5088 brings G5088 forth G2288 death.
17 G3956 Every G18 good G1394 gift G3956 and every G5046 perfect G1394 gift G509 is from above, G2597 and comes G2597 down G3962 from the Father G5457 of lights, G3739 with whom G3756 is no G3883 ficklenss, G2228 neither G644 shadow G5157 of turning.
18 G1014 Of his own will G616 begat G3056 he us with the word G225 of truth, G5100 that we should be a kind G536 of first fruits G2938 of his creatures.
19 G5620 Why, G27 my beloved G80 brothers, G3956 let every G444 man G5036 be swift G191 to hear, G1021 slow G2980 to speak, G1021 slow G3709 to wrath:
21 G1352 Why G659 lay G659 apart G3956 all G4507 filthiness G4050 and superfluity G2549 of naughtiness, G1209 and receive G4240 with meekness G1721 the engrafted G3056 word, G3588 which G1410 is able G4982 to save G5216 your G5590 souls.
22 G4163 But be you doers G3056 of the word, G202 and not hearers G3440 only, G3884 deceiving G1438 your G846 own selves.
23 G1487 For if G1536 any G202 be a hearer G3056 of the word, G4163 and not a doer, G1503 he is like G435 to a man G2657 beholding G1078 his natural G4383 face G2072 in a glass:
24 G2657 For he beholds G1438 himself, G565 and goes G1624 his way, G2112 and straightway G1950 forgets G3697 what G3697 manner of man he was.
25 G3588 But whoever G3879 looks G1519 into G5046 the perfect G3551 law G1657 of liberty, G3887 and continues G1096 therein, he being G1953 not a forgetful G202 hearer, G4163 but a doer G2041 of the work, G3778 this G3107 man shall be blessed G4162 in his deed.
26 G1487 If G1536 any G1722 man among G1380 you seem G2357 to be religious, G5468 and bridles G1100 not his tongue, G538 but deceives G848 his own G2588 heart, G5127 this G2356 man’s religion G3152 is vain.
