Book 59 : JAMES - Chapter 002


For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment


And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, 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


Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts


Hearken, 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


But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats


Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called


If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well


But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors


For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all


For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law


So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty


For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment


What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him


If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food


And one of you say unto them, 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


Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone


Yea, 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 believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble


But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead


Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar


Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect


And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God


Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only


Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way


For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also
