Chapter 1:27 Verses
a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,
to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad,
count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
that ye may be perfect and entire,
let him ask of God,
that giveth to all men liberally,
and upbraideth not;
and it shall be given him.
For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
in that he is made low:
because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.
but it withereth the grass,
and the flower thereof falleth,
and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth:
so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
for when he is tried,
he shall receive the crown of life,
which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
I am tempted of God:
for God cannot be tempted with evil,
neither tempteth he any man:
when he is drawn away of his own lust,
it bringeth forth sin:
when it is finished,
bringeth forth death.
my beloved brethren.
and cometh down from the Father of lights,
with whom is no variableness,
neither shadow of turning.
that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
my beloved brethren,
let every man be swift to hear,
slow to speak,
slow to wrath:
and receive with meekness the engrafted word,
which is able to save your souls.
and not hearers only,
deceiving your own selves.
and not a doer,
he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
and goeth his way,
and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
and continueth therein,
he being not a forgetful hearer,
but a doer of the work,
this man shall be blessed in his deed.
and bridleth not his tongue,
but deceiveth his own heart,
this man’s religion is vain.
To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction,
and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
Chapter 2:26 Verses
have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Lord of glory,
with respect of persons.
in goodly apparel,
and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;
and say unto him,
Sit thou here in a good place;
and say to the poor,
Stand thou there,
or sit here under my footstool:
and are become judges of evil thoughts?
my beloved brethren,
Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith,
and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
Do not rich men oppress you,
and draw you before the judgment seats?
Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself,
ye do well:
ye commit sin,
and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
and yet offend in one point,
he is guilty of all.
Do not commit adultery,
Do not kill.
Now if thou commit no adultery,
yet if thou kill,
thou art become a transgressor of the law.
and so do,
as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.
that hath shewed no mercy;
and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.
though a man say he hath faith,
and have not works?
can faith save him?
and destitute of daily food,
Depart in peace,
be ye warmed and filled;
notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body;
what doth it profit?
if it hath not works,
a man may say,
Thou hast faith,
and I have works:
shew me thy faith without thy works,
and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
thou doest well:
the devils also believe,
O vain man,
that faith without works is dead?
when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
and by works was faith made perfect?
Abraham believed God,
and it was imputed unto him for righteousness:
and he was called the Friend of God.
and not by faith only.
when she had received the messengers,
and had sent them out another way?
so faith without works is dead also.
Chapter 3:18 Verses
be not many masters,
knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.
If any man offend not in word,
the same is a perfect man,
and able also to bridle the whole body.
we put bits in the horses’ mouths,
that they may obey us;
and we turn about their whole body.
which though they be so great,
and are driven of fierce winds,
yet are they turned about with a very small helm,
whithersoever the governor listeth.
and boasteth great things.
how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
a world of iniquity:
so is the tongue among our members,
that it defileth the whole body,
and setteth on fire the course of nature;
and it is set on fire of hell.
and of birds,
and of serpents,
and of things in the sea,
and hath been tamed of mankind:
it is an unruly evil,
full of deadly poison.
even the Father;
and therewith curse we men,
which are made after the similitude of God.
these things ought not so to be.
bear olive berries?
either a vine,
so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
and lie not against the truth.
but is earthly,
there is confusion and every evil work.
and easy to be intreated,
full of mercy and good fruits,
and without hypocrisy.
Chapter 4:17 Verses
come they not hence,
even of your lusts that war in your members?
and have not:
and desire to have,
and cannot obtain:
ye fight and war,
yet ye have not,
because ye ask not.
and receive not,
because ye ask amiss,
that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God?
whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?
Wherefore he saith,
God resisteth the proud,
but giveth grace unto the humble.
Resist the devil,
and he will flee from you.
and he will draw nigh to you.
Cleanse your hands,
and purify your hearts,
ye double minded.
let your laughter be turned to mourning,
and your joy to heaviness.
and he shall lift you up.
He that speaketh evil of his brother,
and judgeth his brother,
speaketh evil of the law,
and judgeth the law:
but if thou judge the law,
thou art not a doer of the law,
but a judge.
who is able to save and to destroy:
who art thou that judgest another?
ye that say,
To day or to morrow we will go into such a city,
and continue there a year,
and buy and sell,
and get gain:
For what is your life?
It is even a vapour,
that appeareth for a little time,
and then vanisheth away.
If the Lord will,
we shall live,
and do this,
all such rejoicing is evil.
and doeth it not,
to him it is sin.
Chapter 5:20 Verses
ye rich men,
weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
and your garments are motheaten.
and the rust of them shall be a witness against you,
and shall eat your flesh as it were fire.
Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields,
which is of you kept back by fraud,
and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.
and been wanton;
ye have nourished your hearts,
as in a day of slaughter.
and he doth not resist you.
unto the coming of the Lord.
the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth,
and hath long patience for it,
until he receive the early and latter rain.
stablish your hearts:
for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
lest ye be condemned:
the judge standeth before the door.
who have spoken in the name of the Lord,
for an example of suffering affliction,
and of patience.
we count them happy which endure.
Ye have heard of the patience of Job,
and have seen the end of the Lord;
that the Lord is very pitiful,
and of tender mercy.
neither by heaven,
neither by the earth,
neither by any other oath:
but let your yea be yea;
and your nay,
lest ye fall into condemnation.
let him pray.
Is any merry?
let him sing psalms.
let him call for the elders of the church;
and let them pray over him,
anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
and the Lord shall raise him up;
and if he have committed sins,
they shall be forgiven him.
and pray one for another,
that ye may be healed.
The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain:
and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.
and the heaven gave rain,
and the earth brought forth her fruit.
if any of you do err from the truth,
and one convert him;
that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death,
and shall hide a multitude of sins.
