James 1:19-27 (The Darby Translation)

View In My Bible
19 So that, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; 20 for man's wrath does not work a God's righteousness. 21 Wherefore, laying aside all filthiness and abounding of wickedness, accept with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. 22 But be ye doers of [the] word and not hearers only, beguiling yourselves. 23 For if any man be a hearer of [the] word and not a doer, *he* is like to a man considering his natural face in a mirror: 24 for he has considered himself and is gone away, and straightway he has forgotten what he was like. 25 But *he* that fixes his view b on [the] perfect law, that of liberty, and abides in [it], being not a forgetful hearer but a doer of [the] work, *he* shall be blessed in his doing. 26 If any one think himself c to be religious, not bridling his tongue, but deceiving his heart, this man's religion is vain. 27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father d is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
