James 1

TYN 1 Iames the seruaut of God and of the Lorde Iesus Christ sendeth gretinge to ye .xii. trybes which are scattered here and there. NIV 1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes scattered among the nations: Greetings. TYN 2 My brethren count it excedynge ioye when ye faule into divers teptacions NIV 2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, TYN 3 for as moche as ye knowe how that the tryinge of youre fayth bringeth pacience: NIV 3 because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. TYN 4 and let pacience have her parfect worke that ye maye be parfecte and sounde lackinge nothinge. NIV 4 Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. TYN 5 Yf eny of you lacke wysdome let him axe of God which geveth to all men indifferentlie and casteth no man in the teth: and it shal be geven him. NIV 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. TYN 6 But let him axe in fayth and waver not. For he that douteth is lyke the waves of the see tost of the wynde and caried with violence. NIV 6 But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. TYN 7 Nether let that man thinke that he shall receave eny thinge of the Lorde. NIV 7 That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; TYN 8 A waveringe mynded man is vnstable in all his wayes. NIV 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does. TYN 9 Let the brother of lowe degre reioyce in yt he is exalted NIV 9 The brother in humble circumstances ought to take pride in his high position. TYN 10 and the ryche in that he is made lowe. For eve as ye flower of the grasse shall he vanysshe awaye. NIV 10 But the one who is rich should take pride in his low position, because he will pass away like a wild flower. TYN 11 The sonne ryseth with heate and the grasse wydereth and his flower falleth awaye and the beautie of the fassion of it perissheth: even so shall the ryche man perisshe with his aboundance. NIV 11 For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich man will fade away even while he goes about his business. TYN 12 Happy is the man that endureth in temptacion for when he is tryed he shall receave the croune of lyfe which the Lorde hath promysed to them that love him. NIV 12 Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. TYN 13 Let no man saye when he is tepted that he is tempted of God. For God tepteth not vnto evyll nether tepteth he anie ma. NIV 13 When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; TYN 14 But every ma is tepted drawne awaye and entysed of his awne concupiscece. NIV 14 but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. TYN 15 Then when lust hath coceaved she bringeth forth synne and synne whe it is fynisshed bringeth forthe deeth. NIV 15 Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. TYN 16 Erre not my deare brethren. NIV 16 Don't be deceived, my dear brothers. TYN 17 Every good gyfte and every parfayt gyft is from above and commeth doune fro the father of light with whom is no variablenes nether is he chaunged vnto darcknes. NIV 17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. TYN 18 Of his awne will begat he vs with the worde of lyfe that we shuld be the fyrst frutes of his creatures. NIV 18 He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created. TYN 19 Wherfore deare brethren let every man be swyfte to heare slowe to speake and slowe to wrath. NIV 19 My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, TYN 20 For the wrath of man worketh not that which is ryghteous before God. NIV 20 for man's anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires. TYN 21 Wherfore laye a parte all fylthynes all superfluite of maliciousnes and receave with meknes the worde yt is grafted in you which is able to save youre soules. NIV 21 Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you. TYN 22 And se that ye be doars of the worde and not hearers only deceavinge youre awne selves with sophistrie NIV 22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. TYN 23 For yf eny heare the worde and do it not he is lyke vnto a man that beholdeth his bodyly face in a glasse. NIV 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror TYN 24 For assone as he hath loked on him silfe he goeth his waye and forgetteth immediatlie what his fassion was. NIV 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. TYN 25 But who so loketh in the parfaict lawe of libertie and continueth ther in (yf he be not a forgetfull hearer but a doar of ye worke) the same shall be happie in his dede. NIV 25 But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it--he will be blessed in what he does. TYN 26 Yf eny man amonge you seme devoute and refrayne not his tonge: but deceave his awne herte this mannes devocion is in vayne NIV 26 If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless. TYN 27 Pure devocion and vndefiled before God the father is this: to vysit the frendlesse and widdowes in their adversite and to kepe him silfe vnspotted of the worlde. NIV 27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
