ESV 1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes in the Dispersion: Greetings. NIV 1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes scattered among the nations: Greetings. ESV 2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, NIV 2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, ESV 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. NIV 3 because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. ESV 4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. NIV 4 Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. ESV 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given 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. ESV 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. 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. ESV 7 For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; NIV 7 That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; ESV 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. NIV 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does. ESV 9 Let the lowly brother boast in his exaltation, NIV 9 The brother in humble circumstances ought to take pride in his high position. ESV 10 and the rich in his humiliation, because like a flower of the grass he will pass away. NIV 10 But the one who is rich should take pride in his low position, because he will pass away like a wild flower.
