13 For 1judgment will be merciless to one who has shown no mercy; mercy atriumphs over judgment.

Faith and Works

14 2What use is it, 3my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can bthat faith save him? 15 4If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, "5Go in peace, cbe warmed and be filled," and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that? 17 Even so 6faith, if it has no works, is ddead, being by itself. 18 7But someone emay well say, "You have faith and I have works; show me your 8faith without the works, and I will 9show you my faith 10by my works." 19 You believe that f11God is one. 12You do well; 13the demons also believe, and shudder. 20 But are you willing to recognize, 14you foolish fellow, that 15faith without works is useless? 21 16Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up Isaac his son on the altar? 22 You see that 17faith was working with his works, and gas a result of the 18works, faith was hperfected; 23 and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, "19AND ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS," and he was called 20the friend of God.
