James 2:1-13

NKJV 1 My brethren, do not hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with partiality. NIV 1 My brothers and sisters, believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ must not show favoritism. NKJV 2 For if there should come into your assembly a man with gold rings, in fine apparel, and there should also come in a poor man in filthy clothes, NIV 2 Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in filthy old clothes also comes in. NKJV 3 and you pay attention to the one wearing the fine clothes and say to him, "You sit here in a good place," and say to the poor man, "You stand there," or, "Sit here at my footstool," NIV 3 If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, “Here’s a good seat for you,” but say to the poor man, “You stand there” or “Sit on the floor by my feet,” NKJV 4 have you not shown partiality among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts? NIV 4 have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts? NKJV 5 Listen, my beloved brethren: Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him? NIV 5 Listen, my dear brothers and sisters: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him? NKJV 6 But you have dishonored the poor man. Do not the rich oppress you and drag you into the courts? NIV 6 But you have dishonored the poor. Is it not the rich who are exploiting you? Are they not the ones who are dragging you into court? NKJV 7 Do they not blaspheme that noble name by which you are called? NIV 7 Are they not the ones who are blaspheming the noble name of him to whom you belong? NKJV 8 If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself," you do well; NIV 8 If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing right. NKJV 9 but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors. NIV 9 But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers. NKJV 10 For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all. NIV 10 For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it. NKJV 11 For He who said, "Do not commit adultery," also said, "Do not murder." Now if you do not commit adultery, but you do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. NIV 11 For he who said, “You shall not commit adultery,” also said, “You shall not murder.” If you do not commit adultery but do commit murder, you have become a lawbreaker. NKJV 12 So speak and so do as those who will be judged by the law of liberty. NIV 12 Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom, NKJV 13 For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment. NIV 13 because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment.
