James 2

Jam 2:1 My brothers, do not with partiality have the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory.
Jam 2:2 For if a gold-fingered man in splendid clothing comes into your synagogue, and a poor one in shabby clothing also comes in;
Jam 2:3 and you look on the one wearing the splendid clothing, and say to him, You sit here comfortably; and to the poor one you say, You stand there, or, Sit here under my footstool;
Jam 2:4 did you not also make a difference among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?
Jam 2:5 Hear, my beloved brothers, did not God choose the poor of this world to be rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to the ones loving Him?
Jam 2:6 But you dishonored the poor one. Do not the rich ones oppress you, and they drag you to judgment seats?
Jam 2:7 Do they not blaspheme the good Name called on you?
Jam 2:8 If you truly fulfill the royal Law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well. Lev. 19:18
Jam 2:9 But if you have partiality you work sin, being reproved by the Law as transgressors.
Jam 2:10 For whoever shall keep all the Law, but stumbles in one, he has become guilty of all.
Jam 2:11 For He who said, “You shall not commit adultery,” also said, “You shall not murder.” Ex. 20:14, 13; Deut. 5:18, 17 But if you do not commit adultery, but commit murder, you have become a transgressor of the Law.
Jam 2:12 So speak and so do as being about to be judged through a Law of freedom.
Jam 2:13 For judgment will be without mercy to the one not doing mercy. And mercy rejoices over judgment.
Jam 2:14 My brothers, what is the gain if anyone says he has faith, but he does not have works? Is the faith able to save him?
Jam 2:15 But if a brother or a sister is naked and may be lacking in daily food,
Jam 2:16 and any one of you say to them, Go in peace, be warmed and filled, but does not give them the things the body needs, what gain is it?
Jam 2:17 So also faith, if it does not have works, is dead being by itself.
Jam 2:18 But someone will say, You have faith, and I have works. Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith out of my works.
Jam 2:19 You believe that God is One. You do well; even the demons believe and shudder.
Jam 2:20 But are you willing to know, O vain man, that faith apart from works is dead?
Jam 2:21 Was not our father Abraham justified by works offering up his son Isaac on the altar? Gen. 22:9
Jam 2:22 You see that faith worked with his works; and out of the works the faith was made perfected.
Jam 2:23 And the Scripture was fulfilled, saying, “And Abraham believed God, and it was counted for righteousness to him;” and he was called, Friend of God. Gen. 15:6; Isa. 41:8
Jam 2:24 You see, then, that a man is justified out of works, and not out of faith only.
Jam 2:25 But in the same way Rahab the harlot was also justified out of works, having received the messengers, and sending them out by another way.
Jam 2:26 For as the body is dead apart from the spirit, so also faith is dead apart from works.

On this day...
