151If a brotherorsister is withoutclothing and in need of dailyfood,
and one of you says to them, "2Go in peace, abe warmed and be filled," and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, whatuse is that?
17Evenso3faith, if it hasnoworks, is bdead, being by itself.
184But someonecmay well say, "You havefaith and I haveworks ; show me your 5faithwithout the works, and I will 6show you my faith7by my works."
You believe that d8God is one. 9You dowell ; 10the demonsalsobelieve, and shudder.
But are you willing to recognize, 11you foolishfellow, that 12faithwithoutworks is useless ?
2113Was not Abraham our fatherjustified by works when he offered up Isaac his son on the altar ?
You see that 14faith was working with his works, and eas a result of the 15works, faith was fperfected ;
and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, "16AND ABRAHAMBELIEVEDGOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS," and he was called17the friend of God.
You see that a man is justified by works and not by faithalone.
In the sameway, was not 18Rahab the harlotalsojustified by works19when she received the messengers and sent them out by anotherway ?
