James: Chapter 1

(Jas 1:1 KJV)  James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.

 

(Jas 1:2 KJV)  My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

 

(Jas 1:3 KJV)  Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

 

(Jas 1:4 KJV)  But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

 

(Jas 1:5 KJV)  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.

 

(Jas 1:6 KJV)  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.

 

(Jas 1:7 KJV)  For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

 

(Jas 1:8 KJV)  A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

 

(Jas 1:9 KJV)  Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:

 

(Jas 1:10 KJV)  But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.

 

(Jas 1:11 KJV)  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.

 

(Jas 1:12 KJV)  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.

 

(Jas 1:13 KJV)  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:

 

(Jas 1:14 KJV)  But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

 

(Jas 1:15 KJV)  Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

 

(Jas 1:16 KJV)  Do not err, my beloved brethren.

 

(Jas 1:17 KJV)  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.

 

(Jas 1:18 KJV)  Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

 

(Jas 1:19 KJV)  Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:

 

(Jas 1:20 KJV)  For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.

 

(Jas 1:21 KJV)  Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

 

(Jas 1:22 KJV)  But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

 

(Jas 1:23 KJV)  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:

 

(Jas 1:24 KJV)  For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

 

(Jas 1:25 KJV)  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.

 

(Jas 1:26 KJV)  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.

 

(Jas 1:27 KJV)  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.
