James 2:12

So speak ye, and so do (outw laleite kai outw poieite). Present active imperatives as a habit. For the combination see Matthew 1:19-21 contrasted with Matthew 1:22-25 , and Matthew 1:26 with Matthew 1:27 . By a law of liberty (dia nomou eleuqeria). The law pictured in Matthew 1:25 , but law, after all, not individual caprice of "personal liberty." See Romans 2:12 for this same use of dia with krinw in the sense of accompaniment as in Romans 2:27 ; Romans 4:11 ; Romans 14:20 . "Under the law of liberty."
