Jas:2:13: For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.
Jas:2:14: What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
Jas:2:15: If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,
Jas:2:16: And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
Jas:2:17: Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
Jas:2:18: Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
Jas:2:19: Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
Jas:2:20: But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
Jas:2:21: Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
Jas:2:22: Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
Jas:2:23: And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
Jas:2:24: Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.
Jas:2:25: Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?
Jas:2:26: For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Chapter 03
Jas:3:1: My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.
Jas:3:2: For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.
Jas:3:3: Behold, we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.
Jas:3:4: Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.
Jas:3:5: Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
Jas:3:6: And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
Jas:3:7: For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
Jas:3:8: But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
Jas:3:9: Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
Jas:3:10: Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
Jas:3:11: Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?
Jas:3:12: Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
Jas:3:13: Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
Jas:3:14: But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
Jas:3:15: This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
James
