    VERSE (9) -
    :1-4 Le 19:15

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:9

    pero si hacis acepcin de personas, cometis pecado, y sois acusados de la ley como rebeldes.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - James 2:9

    Verse 9. But if ye have respect to persons] In
    judgment, or in any other way; ye commit sin against God, and against your brethren, and are convinced, elegcomenoi, and are convicted, by the law; by this royal law, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself; as transgressors, having shown this sinful acceptance of persons, which has led you to refuse justice to the poor man, and uphold the rich in his oppressive conduct.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 9. But if ye have respect to persons, ye
    commit sin , &c] This is not doing well, but is a transgression of the law, as every sin is; hence it follows, and are convinced of the law as transgressors ; which carries on a formal process against such persons; it accuses them of sin, and charges them with it; it proves it upon them, and convicts them of it; it pronounces them guilty, and curses them for it; and passes the sentence of condemnation and death upon them; wherefore care should be taken not to commit this sin, and so fall under the convictions and reproofs of the law.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-13 - Those who profess
    faith in Christ as the Lord of glory, must no respect persons on account of mere outward circumstances an appearances, in a manner not agreeing with their profession of being disciples of the lowly Jesus. St. James does not here encourag rudeness or disorder: civil respect must be paid; but never such as to influence the proceedings of Christians in disposing of the offices of the church of Christ, or in passing the censures of the church, or in any matter of religion. Questioning ourselves is of great use in ever part of the holy life. Let us be more frequent in this, and in ever thing take occasion to discourse with our souls. As places of worshi cannot be built or maintained without expense, it may be proper tha those who contribute thereto should be accommodated accordingly; but were all persons more spiritually-minded, the poor would be treate with more attention that usually is the case in worshippin congregations. A lowly state is most favourable for inward peace and for growth in holiness. God would give to all believers riches an honours of this world, if these would do them good, seeing that he ha chosen them to be rich in faith, and made them heirs of his kingdom which he promised to bestow on all who love him. Consider how ofte riches lead to vice and mischief, and what great reproaches are throw upon God and religion, by men of wealth, power, and worldly greatness and it will make this sin appear very sinful and foolish. The Scriptur gives as a law, to love our neighbour as ourselves. This law is a roya law, it comes from the King of kings; and if Christians act unjustly they are convicted by the law as transgressors. To think that our goo deeds will atone for our bad deeds, plainly puts us upon looking for another atonement. According to the covenant of works, one breach of any one command brings a man under condemnation, from which n obedience, past, present, or future, can deliver him. This shows us the happiness of those that are in Christ. We may serve him without slavis fear. God's restraints are not a bondage, but our own corruptions ar so. The doom passed upon impenitent sinners at last, will be judgmen without mercy. But God deems it his glory and joy, to pardon and bles those who might justly be condemned at his tribunal; and his grac teaches those who partake of his mercy, to copy it in their conduct.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    9. Ye have respect to persons (proswpolhmpteite). Only here in New Testament. See on ver. 1.

    Ye commit sin (amartian ergazesqe). Lit., "work sin." Compare Matt. vii. 23; Acts x. 35; Heb. xi. 33. The phrase is rather stronger than the more common aJmartian poiein, to do sin, John viii. 34; James v. 15; 1 Pet. ii. 29. The position of sin is emphatic: "it is sin that ye are working."

    And are convinced (elegcomenoi). Rather, as Rev., convicted. The word, which is variously rendered in A.V. tell a fault, reprove, rebuke, convince, while it carries the idea of rebuke, implies also a rebuke which produces a conviction of the error or sin. See on John viii. 46. Compare John iii. 20; viii. 9; 1 Corinthians xiv. 24, 25.
