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 scattered abroad, G5463 greeting.
2 G3450 My G80 brothers, G2233 count it G3956 all G5479 joy G3752 when G4045 you fall into G4164 various G3986 temptations;
3 G1097 Knowing G3754 this, that G1383 the trying G5216 of your G4102 faith G2716 works G5281 patience.
4 G1161 But G5281 let patience G2192 have G5046 her perfect G2041 work, G2443 that G5600 you may be G5046 perfect G2532 and G3648 entire, G3007 wanting G1722 G3367 nothing.
5 G1487 If G5100 any G5216 of you G3007 lack G4678 wisdom, G154 let him ask G3844 of G2316 God, G1325 that gives G3956 to all G574 men liberally, G2532 and G3679 upbraids 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 wavering. G1063 For G1252 he that wavers G1503 is like G2830 a wave G2281 of the sea G416 driven with 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 any thing G3844 of G2962 the Lord.
9 G1161 Let G80 the brother G5011 of low degree G2744 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 he shall pass away.
11 G1063 For G2246 the sun G393 is no sooner risen G4862 with G2742 a burning heat, G2532 but G3583 it withers G5528 the grass, G2532 and G438 the flower G846 there G1601 falls, G2532 and G2143 the grace G4383 of the appearance G846 of it G622 perishes: G3779 so G2532 also G3133 shall G4145 the rich man G3133 fade away G1722 in G846 his G4197 ways.
12 G3107 Blessed G435 is the man G3739 that G5278 endures G3986 temptation: G3754 for G1096 when he is G1384 tried, G2983 he shall receive G4735 the crown G2222 of life, G3739 which G2962 the Lord G1861 has 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 G2076 G551 cannot be tempted G2556 with evil, G1161 neither G3985 tempts G846 he G3762 any man:
14 G1161 But G1538 every man G3985 is tempted, G1828 when he is drawn away G5259 by G2398 his own G1939 lust, G2532 and G1185 enticed.
15 G1534 Then when G1939 lust G4815 has conceived, G5088 it brings forth G266 sin: G1161 and G266 sin, G658 when it is finished, 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 and comes down G575 from G3962 the Father G5457 of lights, G3844 with G3739 whom G1762 is G3756 no G3883 variableness, G2228 neither G644 shadow G5157 of turning.
18 G1014 Of his own will G616 he G2248 fathered us G3056 with the word G1519 of truth, G2248 that we G1511 should be G5100 a kind G536 of firstfruits G846 of his G2938 creatures.
19 G5620 Therefore, 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 slow G1519 to G3709 wrath:
20 G1063 For G3709 the wrath G435 of man G2716 works G3756 not G1343 the righteousness G2316 of God.
21 G1352 Therefore G659 lay apart G3956 all G4507 filthiness G2532 and G4050 abundance G2549 of evil, G1209 and receive G1722 with G4240 meekness G1721 the engrafted 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 G202 hearers G3440 only, G3884 deceiving G1438 your own selves.
23 G3754 For G1487 if G5100 any G202 is a hearer G3056 of the word, G2532 and G3756 not G4163 a doer, G3778 he G2076 is G435 like a man G2657 beholding G846 his G1078 natural G4383 face G1722 in G2072 a mirror:
24 G1063 For G2657 he sees G1438 himself, G2532 and G565 goes his way, G2532 and G2112 directly G1950 forgets G3697 what manner of man G2258 he was.
25 G1161 But G3879 whoever looks G1519 into G5046 the perfect G3551 law G1657 of liberty, G2532 and G3887 continues G3778 in it, he G1096 being G3756 not G1953 a forgetful G202 hearer, G235 but G4163 a doer G2041 of the work, G3778 this man G2071 shall be G3107 blessed G1722 in G846 his G4162 deeds.
26 G1487 If G5100 any man G1722 among G5213 you G1380 seems G1511 to be G2357 religious, G5468 and bridles G3361 not G846 his G1100 tongue, G235 but G538 deceives G846 his own G2588 heart, G5127 this man's G2356 religion G3152 is vain.
