1 G2385 Jacob, G1401 a slave G2316 of God G2532 and G2962 of the Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Anointed, G1427 to the twelve G5443 tribes G1722 who G1290 are scattered abroad, G5463 [G5721] greeting.
2 G3450 My G80 brethren, G2233 [G5662] count it G3956 all G5479 joy G3752 when G4045 [G5632] ye fall G4164 into various G3986 temptations;
3 G1097 [G5723] Knowing this, G3754 that G3588 the G1383 proving G5216 of your G3588 G4102 faith G2716 [G5736] worketh G5281 endurance.
4 G1161 But G2192 0 let G5281 patience G2192 [G5720] have G5046 her perfect G2041 work, G2443 that G5600 [G5753] ye may be G5046 perfect G2532 and G3648 entirely whole, G3007 [G5746] lacking G1722 G3367 nothing.
5 G1161 G1536 If any G5216 of you G3007 [G5743] lacketh G4678 wisdom, G154 [G5720] let him ask G3844 of G2316 God, G1325 [G5723] who giveth G3956 to all G574 men liberally, G2532 and G3679 [G5723] upbraideth G3361 not; G2532 and G1325 [G5701] it shall be given G846 to him.
6 G1161 But G154 [G5720] let him ask G1722 in G4102 faith, G3367 nothing G1252 [G5734] wavering. G1063 For G1252 [G5734] he that wavereth G1503 [G5758] resembles G2830 a wave G2281 of the sea G416 [G5746] driven with the wind G2532 and G4494 [G5746] tossed.
7 G1063 For G3633 0 let G3361 not G1565 that G444 man G3633 [G5737] think G3754 that G2983 [G5695] he shall receive G5100 any thing G3844 from G2962 the Lord.
9 G1161 But G2744 0 let G3588 the G5011 humble G80 brother G2744 [G5737] boast G1722 in G3588 G846 his G5311 height:
10 G1161 But G4145 the rich, G1722 in G846 his G5014 humiliation: G3754 because G5613 as G438 a flower G5528 of the grass G3928 [G5695] he shall pass away.
11 G1063 For G2246 the sun G393 [G5656] did rise G4862 with G2742 a burning heat, G2532 and G3583 [G5656] it withered G5528 the grass, G2532 and G846 its G438 flower G1601 [G5627] fell out, G2532 and G2143 the good befittedness G846 of its G4383 fashion G622 [G5639] is made lost: G3779 so G2532 also G3133 0 shall G4145 the rich man G3133 [G5701] fade away G1722 in G846 his G4197 ways.
12 G3107 Blessed G435 is the man G3739 that G5278 [G5719] endureth G3986 temptation: G3754 for G1384 G1096 [G5637] when he is approved, G2983 [G5695] he shall receive G4735 the crown G2222 of life, G3739 which G2962 the Lord G1861 [G5662] hath promised G25 [G5723] to them that love G846 him.
13 G3004 0 Let G3367 no man G3985 [G5746] being tested G3004 [G5720] say G3754 that, G3985 [G5743] I am tested G575 from G2316 God: G3588 G1063 for G2316 God G2076 [G5748] is G551 incapable of being tested G2556 with bad things, G1161 neither G3985 0 testeth G846 G3985 [G5719] he G3762 any man:
14 G1161 But G1538 each G3985 [G5743] is tested, G1828 [G5746] when he is being drawn away G5259 by G2398 his own G1939 lust, G2532 and G1185 [G5746] being entrapped.
15 G1534 Then G1939 when lust G4815 [G5631] hath conceived, G5088 [G5719] it bringeth forth G266 sin: G1161 and G266 sin, G658 [G5685] when it is finished, G616 [G5719] bringeth forth G2288 death.
17 G3956 Every G18 good G1394 gift G2532 and G3956 every G5046 perfect G1434 gift G2076 [G5748] is G509 from above, G2597 [G5723] and cometh down G575 from G3962 the Father G5457 of lights, G3844 with G3739 whom G1762 [G5748] is G3756 no G3883 variableness, G2228 neither G644 shadow G5157 of turning.
18 G1014 [G5679] Of his own will G616 [G5656] he hath begotten G2248 us G3056 with the word G225 of truth, G1519 that G2248 we G1511 [G5750] should be G5100 a kind G536 of firstfruits G846 of his G2938 creatures.
19 G5620 Therefore, G3450 my G27 beloved G80 brethren, G2077 0 let G3956 every G444 man G2077 [G5749] be G5036 swift G1519 to G191 [G5658] hear, G1021 slow G1519 to G2980 [G5658] speak, G1021 slow G1519 to G3709 wrath:
20 G1063 For G3709 the wrath G435 of man G2716 [G5736] worketh G3756 not G1343 the righteousness G2316 of God.
21 G1352 Therefore G659 [G5642] put away G3956 all G4507 filthiness G2532 and G4050 superabundance G2549 of wickedness, G1209 [G5663] and receive G1722 with G4240 meekness G1721 the engrafted G3056 word, G3588 which G1410 [G5740] is able G4982 [G5658] to save G5216 your G5590 breaths.
22 G1161 But G1096 [G5737] be ye G4163 doers G3056 of the word, G2532 and G3361 not G202 hearers G3440 only, G3884 [G5740] deceiving G1438 your own selves.
23 G3754 For G1536 if any G2076 [G5748] is G202 a hearer G3056 of the word, G2532 and G3756 not G4163 a doer, G3778 he G1503 [G5758] resembles G435 a man G2657 [G5723] beholding G846 his G1078 natural G4383 face G1722 in G2072 a mirror:
24 G1063 For G2657 [G5656] he beholdeth G1438 himself, G2532 and G565 [G5754] goeth away, G2532 and G2112 immediately G1950 [G5633] forgetteth G3697 what manner of man G2258 [G5713] he was.
25 G1161 But G3879 [G5660] he who looketh G1519 into G5046 the perfect G3551 law G1657 of liberty, G2532 and G3887 [G5660] continueth G3778 in it, he G1096 [G5637] being G3756 not G1953 a forgetful G202 hearer, G235 but G4163 a doer G2041 of the work, G3778 this man G2071 [G5704] shall be G3107 blessed G1722 in G846 his G4162 deed.
26 G1536 If any man G1722 among G5213 you G1380 [G5719] seemeth G1511 [G5750] to be G2357 ceremonious in observance, G5468 [G5723] and bridleth G3361 not G846 his G1100 tongue, G235 but G538 [G5723] deceiveth G846 his own G2588 heart, G5127 this man's G2356 ceremonial observance G3152 is vain.
27 G2513 Clean G2532 and G283 undefiled G2356 ceremonial observance G3844 before G2316 God G2532 and G3962 the Father G2076 [G5748] is G3778 this, G1980 [G5738] To visit G3737 the fatherless G2532 and G5503 widows G1722 in G846 their G2347 affliction, G5083 [G5721] and to keep G1438 himself G784 unspotted G575 from G2889 the world.
