for 1the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God.
21Therefore, 2puttingasideallfilthiness and all athat remains of wickedness, in bhumilityreceive3the wordimplanted, which is able to save your souls.
224But 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 cnaturalface5in a mirror;
for once he has looked at himself and goneaway, dhe has immediatelyforgottenwhatkind of person he was.
But one who looksintently at the perfectlaw, 6the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetfulhearer but ean effectualdoer, thisman will be 7blessed in fwhat he does.
26Ifanyonethinks himself to be religious, and yet does not g8bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, thisman'sreligion is worthless.
27Pure and undefiledreligion9in the sight of our God and Father is this: to 10visit11orphans and widows in their distress, and to keeponeselfunstainedhby 12the world.
