James 1

CJB 1 From: Ya'akov, a slave of God and of the Lord Yeshua the Messiah To: The Twelve Tribes in the Diaspora: Shalom! NIV 1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes scattered among the nations: Greetings. CJB 2 Regard it all as joy, my brothers, when you face various kinds of temptations; NIV 2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, CJB 3 for you know that the testing of your trust produces perseverance. NIV 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. CJB 4 But let perseverance do its complete work; so that you may be complete and whole, lacking in nothing. NIV 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. CJB 5 Now if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to all generously and without reproach; 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. CJB 6 But let him ask in trust, doubting nothing; for the doubter is like a wave in the sea being tossed and driven 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. CJB 7 Indeed that person should not think that he will receive anything from the Lord, NIV 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. CJB 8 because he is double-minded, unstable in all his ways. NIV 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. CJB 9 Let the brother in humble circumstances boast about his high position. NIV 9 Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position. CJB 10 But let the rich brother boast about his being humbled; since, like a wildflower, he will pass away. NIV 10 But the rich should take pride in their humiliation—since they will pass away like a wild flower. CJB 11 For just as the sun rises with the sharav and dries up the plant, so that its flower falls off and its beauty is destroyed, so too the rich person going about his business will wither away. 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. CJB 12 How blessed is the man who perseveres through temptation! For after he has passed the test, he will receive as his crown the Life which 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. CJB 13 No one being tempted should say, "I am being tempted by God." For God cannot be tempted by evil, and God himself tempts no one. NIV 13 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; CJB 14 Rather, each person is being tempted whenever he is being dragged off and enticed by the bait of his own desire. NIV 14 but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. CJB 15 Then, having conceived, the desire 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. CJB 16 Don't delude yourselves, my dear brothers. NIV 16 Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. CJB 17 Every good act of giving and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father who made the heavenly lights; with him there is neither variation nor darkness caused 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. CJB 18 Having made his decision, he gave birth to us through a Word that can be relied upon, in order that we should be a kind of firstfruits of all that he created. 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. CJB 19 Therefore, my dear brothers, let every person be quick to listen but slow to speak, slow to get angry; 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, CJB 20 for a person's anger does not accomplish God's righteousness! NIV 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. CJB 21 So rid yourselves of all vulgarity and obvious evil, and receive meekly the Word implanted in you that can save your lives. 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. CJB 22 Don't deceive yourselves by only hearing what the Word says, but do it! NIV 22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. CJB 23 For whoever hears the Word but doesn't do what it says is like someone 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 CJB 24 who looks at himself, 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. CJB 25 But if a person looks closely into the perfect Torah, which gives freedom, and continues, becoming not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work it requires, then he 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. CJB 26 Anyone who thinks he is religiously observant but does not control his tongue is deceiving himself, and his observance counts for nothing. 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. CJB 27 The religious observance that God the Father considers pure and faultless is this: to care for orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being contaminated 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.
