Updated King James Version " I love Jesus (UKJV)."
1 2 3 4 5
1:1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes
which are scattered abroad, greeting.
1:2 My brethren, count it all joy when all of you fall into divers temptations;
1:3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith works patience.
1:4 But let patience have her perfect work, that all of you may be perfect
and entire, lacking nothing.
1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that gives to all men
liberally, and reproaches not; and it shall be given him.
1:6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavers is like
a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
1:7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
1:8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
1:9 Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:
1:10 But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass
he shall pass away.
1:11 For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withers the
grass, and the flower thereof falls, and the grace of the fashion of it perishes:
so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
1:12 Blessed is the man that endures temptation: for when he is tried, he
shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to them that love
1:13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot
be tempted with evil, neither tempts he any man:
1:14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and
1:15 Then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin: and sin, when it
is finished, brings forth death.
1:16 Do not go astray, my beloved brethren.
1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down
from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
1:18 Of his own will brings forth he us with the word (o. logos) of truth,
that we should be a kind of first-fruits of his creatures.
1:19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow
to speak, slow to wrath:
1:20 For the wrath of man works not the righteousness of God.
1:21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and abundance of evil, and receive
with meekness the implanted word, (o. logos) which is able to save your souls.
1:22 But be all of you doers of the word, (o. logos) and not hearers only,
deceiving your own selves.
1:23 For if any be a hearer of the word, (o. logos) and not a doer, he is
like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
1:24 For he beholds himself, and goes his way, and immediately forgets what
manner of man he was.
1:25 But whoso looks into the perfect law of liberty, and continues therein,
he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed
in his deed.
1:26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridles not his tongue,
but deceives his own heart, this man's religion is vain.
1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit
the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted
from the world.
