2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

9 Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

10 But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

11 For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, 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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
