James 1

GW 1 From James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ. To God's faithful people who have been scattered. Greetings. NIV 1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes scattered among the nations: Greetings. GW 2 My brothers and sisters, be very happy when you are tested in different ways. NIV 2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, GW 3 You know that such testing of your faith produces endurance. NIV 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. GW 4 Endure until your testing is over. Then you will be mature and complete, and you won't need anything. NIV 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. GW 5 If any of you needs wisdom to know what you should do, you should ask God, and he will give it to you. God is generous to everyone and doesn't find fault with them. 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. GW 6 When you ask for something, don't have any doubts. A person who has doubts is like a wave that is blown by the wind and tossed by the sea. 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. GW 7 A person who has doubts shouldn't expect to receive anything from the Lord. NIV 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. GW 8 A person who has doubts is thinking about two different things at the same time and can't make up his mind about anything. NIV 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. GW 9 Humble believers should be proud because being humble makes them important. NIV 9 Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position. GW 10 Rich believers should be proud because being rich should make them humble. Rich people will wither like flowers. NIV 10 But the rich should take pride in their humiliation—since they will pass away like a wild flower. GW 11 The sun rises with its scorching heat and dries up plants. The flowers drop off, and the beauty is gone. The same thing will happen to rich people. While they are busy, they will die. 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. GW 12 Blessed are those who endure when they are tested. When they pass the test, they will receive the crown of life that God 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. GW 13 When someone is tempted, he shouldn't say that God is tempting him. God can't be tempted by evil, and God 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; GW 14 Everyone is tempted by his own desires as they lure him away and trap him. NIV 14 but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. GW 15 Then desire becomes pregnant and gives birth to sin. When sin grows up, 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. GW 16 My dear brothers and sisters, don't be fooled. NIV 16 Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. GW 17 Every good present and every perfect gift comes from above, from the Father who made the sun, moon, and stars. The Father doesn't change like the shifting shadows produced by the sun and the moon. 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. GW 18 God decided to give us life through the word of truth to make us his most important 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. GW 19 Remember this, my dear brothers and sisters: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and should not get angry easily. 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, GW 20 An angry person doesn't do what God approves of. NIV 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. GW 21 So get rid of all immoral behavior and all the wicked things you do. Humbly accept the word that God has placed in you. This word can 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. GW 22 Do what God's word says. Don't merely listen to it, or you will fool yourselves. NIV 22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. GW 23 If someone listens to God's word but doesn't do what it says, he is like a person who looks at his 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 GW 24 studies his features, goes away, and immediately forgets what he looks like. NIV 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. GW 25 However, the person who continues to study God's perfect teachings that make people free and who remains committed to them will be blessed. People like that don't merely listen and forget; they actually do what God's teachings say. 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. GW 26 If a person thinks that he is religious but can't control his tongue, he is fooling himself. That person's religion is worthless. 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. GW 27 Pure, unstained religion, according to God our Father, is to take care of orphans and widows when they suffer and to remain uncorrupted by this 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.
