James 2:1-7

NRSA 1 My brothers and sisters, do you with your acts of favoritism really believe in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ? NIV 1 My brothers and sisters, believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ must not show favoritism. NRSA 2 For if a person with gold rings and in fine clothes comes into your assembly, and if a poor person in dirty clothes also comes in, 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. NRSA 3 and if you take notice of the one wearing the fine clothes and say, "Have a seat here, please," while to the one who is poor you say, "Stand there," or, "Sit at my feet," 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,” NRSA 4 have you not made distinctions among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts? NIV 4 have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts? NRSA 5 Listen, my beloved brothers and sisters. Has not God chosen the poor in the world to be rich in faith and to be heirs of the kingdom that he has 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? NRSA 6 But you have dishonored the poor. Is it not the rich who oppress you? Is it not they who drag you into court? 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? NRSA 7 Is it not they who blaspheme the excellent name that was invoked over you? NIV 7 Are they not the ones who are blaspheming the noble name of him to whom you belong?
