1:1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are in the Dispersion: greetings.
1:2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you fall into various temptations,
1:3 Knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.
1:5 But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach; and it will be given him.
1:6 But let him ask in faith, without any doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, driven by the wind and tossed.
1:7 For let that man not think that he will receive anything from the Lord.
1:8 He is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
1:9 But let the brother in humble circumstances glory in his high position;
1:10 and the rich, in that he is made humble, because like the flower in the grass, he will pass away.
1:12 Blessed is the man who endures temptation, for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life, which the Lord promised to those who love him.
1:14 But each one is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed.
1:16 Don`t be deceived, my beloved brothers.
1:18 Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures.
1:20 for the anger of man doesn`t produce the righteousness of God.
1:21 Therefore, putting away all filthiness and overflowing of wickedness, receive with humility the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
1:22 But be doers of the word, and not only hearers, deluding your own selves.
1:23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man beholding his natural face in a mirror;
1:24 for he sees himself, and goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.
1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before our God and Father is this: to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
