James 1:19-27 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
19 aThis 1you know, 2my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, 3slow to speak and 4slow to anger ; 20 for 5the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God. 21 Therefore, 6putting aside all filthiness and all bthat remains of wickedness, in chumility receive 7the word implanted, which is able to save your souls. 22 8But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his dnatural face 9in a mirror ; 24 for once he has looked at himself and gone away, ehe has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was. 25 But one who looks intently at the perfect law, 10the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but fan effectual doer, this man will be 11blessed in gwhat he does. 26 If anyone thinks himself to be religious, and yet does not h12bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this man's religion is worthless. 27 Pure and undefiled religion 13in the sight of our God and Father is this : to 14visit 15orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained iby 16the world.
