James 1

CSB 1 James, a slave of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ: To the 12 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. CSB 2 Consider it a great joy, my brothers, whenever you experience various trials, NIV 2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, CSB 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. NIV 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. CSB 4 But endurance must do its complete work, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing. NIV 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. CSB 5 Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives to all generously and without criticizing, and it will be given to him. NIV 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. CSB 6 But let him ask in faith without doubting. For the doubter is like the surging sea, driven and tossed by the wind. NIV 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. CSB 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. NIV 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. CSB 8 An indecisive man is unstable in all his ways. NIV 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. CSB 9 The brother of humble circumstances should boast in his exaltation; NIV 9 Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position. CSB 10 but the one who is rich [should boast] in his humiliation, because he will pass away like a flower of the field. NIV 10 But the rich should take pride in their humiliation—since they will pass away like a wild flower. CSB 11 For the sun rises with its scorching heat and dries up the grass; its flower falls off, and its beautiful appearance is destroyed. In the same way, the rich man will wither away while pursuing his activities. 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 will fade away even while they go about their business. CSB 12 Blessed is a man who endures trials, because when he passes the test he will receive the crown of life that He has promised to those who love Him. NIV 12 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. CSB 13 No one undergoing a trial should say, "I am being tempted by God." For God is not tempted by evil, and He Himself doesn't tempt anyone. NIV 13 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; CSB 14 But each person is tempted when he is drawn away and enticed by his own evil desires. NIV 14 but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. CSB 15 Then after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin, and when sin is fully grown, it gives birth to death. NIV 15 Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. CSB 16 Don't be deceived, my dearly loved brothers. NIV 16 Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. CSB 17 Every generous act and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights; with Him there is no variation or shadow cast by turning. 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. CSB 18 By His own choice, He gave us a new birth by the message of truth so that we would be the firstfruits 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. CSB 19 My dearly loved brothers, understand this: everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger, NIV 19 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, CSB 20 for man's anger does not accomplish God's righteousness. NIV 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. CSB 21 Therefore, ridding yourselves of all moral filth and evil excess, humbly receive the implanted word, which is able to save you. 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. CSB 22 But be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. NIV 22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. CSB 23 Because if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man looking at his own face in a mirror; NIV 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror CSB 24 for he looks at himself, goes away, and right away forgets what kind of man he was. NIV 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. CSB 25 But the one who looks intently into the perfect law of freedom and perseveres in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer who acts-this person will be blessed in what he does. NIV 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do. CSB 26 If anyone thinks he is religious, without controlling his tongue but deceiving his heart, his religion is useless. NIV 26 Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless. CSB 27 Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world. 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.
