19aThis 1you know, 2my belovedbrethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, 3slow to speak and 4slow to anger;
for 5the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God.
21Therefore, 6puttingasideallfilthiness and all bthat remains of wickedness, in chumilityreceive7the wordimplanted, which is able to save your souls.
228But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merelyhearers who deludethemselves.
For ifanyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his dnaturalface9in a mirror;
for once he has looked at himself and goneaway, ehe has immediatelyforgottenwhatkind of person he was.
But one who looksintently at the perfectlaw, 10the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetfulhearer but fan effectualdoer, thisman will be 11blessed in gwhat he does.
26Ifanyonethinks himself to be religious, and yet does not h12bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, thisman'sreligion is worthless.
27Pure and undefiledreligion13in the sight of our God and Father is this: to 14visit15orphans and widows in their distress, and to keeponeselfunstainediby 16the world.
