My brethren, do not ye have the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ of glory, in acception of persons [in acception, or taking, of persons].
For if a man that hath a golden ring, and in a fair clothing, cometh in your company, and a poor man entereth in a foul clothing, [Forsooth if there shall enter into your covent, or gathering together, a man having a gold ring, in white, or fair, cloth, forsooth and a poor man shall enter in foul habit, or cloth,]
and if ye behold into him [and ye behold into him] that is clothed with clear clothing, and if ye say to him, Sit thou here well; but to the poor man ye say, Stand thou there, either sit under the stool of my feet [Stand thou there, or sit under the stool of my feet];
whether ye deem not with yourselves, and be made doomsmen of wicked thoughts?
Hear ye, my most dear-worthy brethren, whether God chose not poor men in this world, rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom, that God promised to men that love him?
But ye have despised the poor man. Whether rich men oppress not you by power, and they draw you to dooms [and draw you to dooms]?
Whether they blaspheme not the good name, that is called to help on you [that is in-called of you]?
Nevertheless if ye perform the king's law, by scriptures [+after scriptures/by scripture], Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well.
But if ye take persons, ye work sin, and be reproved of the law, as trespassers [as transgressors].
And whoever keepeth all the law, but offendeth in one [Forsooth whoever shall keep all the law, soothly offend in one], he is made guilty of all.
For he that said, Thou shalt do no lechery [Thou shalt not do lechery], said also, Thou shalt not slay; that if thou doest no lechery, but thou slayest, thou art made [a] trespasser of the law.
Thus speak ye, and thus do ye, as beginning to be deemed by the law of freedom.
For why doom without mercy is to him, that doeth no mercy; but mercy above raiseth doom.
