James 1

JUB 1 James, {Gr. Jacob}, <em>a</em> slave of God and of the Lord Jesus, the Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting. NIV 1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes scattered among the nations: Greetings. JUB 2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into diverse trials, NIV 2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, JUB 3 knowing that the proving of your faith works patience, NIV 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. JUB 4 and the patience finishes the work, that ye may be perfect and entire, not lacking in anything. NIV 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. JUB 5 And if any of you lacks wisdom, let them ask of God (who gives abundantly to all, and without reproach), and it shall be given 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. JUB 6 But ask in faith, not doubting anything. For <em>he</em> that doubts is like the wave of the sea which is driven of the wind and is tossed from one side to another. 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. JUB 7 For let not such <em>a</em> man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord. NIV 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. JUB 8 The double minded man <em>is</em> unstable in all his ways. NIV 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. JUB 9 Let the brother of low degree rejoice in his high status; NIV 9 Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position. JUB 10 and he who is rich, in his low status, because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away. NIV 10 But the rich should take pride in their humiliation—since they will pass away like a wild flower. JUB 11 For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withers the grass, and its flower falls, and the beautiful appearance of it perishes: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways. 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. JUB 12 Blessed is the man that <em>patiently</em> endures temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to those that 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. JUB 13 Let no one say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God; for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither does he 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; JUB 14 But each one is tempted, when they are drawn away of their own lust and enticed. NIV 14 but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. JUB 15 Then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin; and sin, when it is finished, brings forth death. NIV 15 Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. JUB 16 Do not err, my beloved brethren. NIV 16 Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. JUB 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness neither shadow of 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. JUB 18 He, of his own will, has begotten us with the word of truth, that we should 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. JUB 19 Therefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; 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, JUB 20 for the wrath of man does not work the righteousness of God. NIV 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. JUB 21 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. 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. JUB 22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. NIV 22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. JUB 23 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: 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 JUB 24 For he considered himself and went his way and in one hour forgot what he was like. NIV 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. JUB 25 But whosoever has looked <em>attentively</em> into the perfect law of liberty and has persevered <em>in it</em>, not being a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, the same shall be blessed in their deed. 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. JUB 26 If anyone among you thinks to be religious and does not bridle his tongue, but deceives his own heart, his religion <em>is</em> vain. 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. JUB 27 The pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their tribulation <em>and</em> to keep thyself unspotted from 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.
