Therefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath;
for the wrath of man does not work the righteousness of God.
So then, leave all uncleanness and remains of malice and receive with meekness the word ingested within you, which is able to cause your souls to be saved.
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
For if anyone hears the word and does not put it into practice, this same is like unto the man beholding his natural face in a mirror:
For he considered himself and went his way and in one hour forgot what he was like.
But whosoever has looked attentively into the perfect law of liberty and has persevered in it, not being a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, the same shall be blessed in their deed.
If anyone among you thinks to be religious and does not bridle his tongue, but deceives his own heart, his religion is vain.
The pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their tribulation and to keep thyself unspotted from this world.
