JAMES, a 1servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are of the Dispersion, greeting. 2) Count it all joy, my brethren, when ye fall into mani(3 fold temptations; "knowing that the proof of your faith worketh patience. "And let patience have its perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, lacking in nothing. (5 But if any of you lacketh wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth to all liberally and upbraideth not; and it 6 shall be given him. "But let him ask in faith, nothing doubting: for he that doubteth is like the surge of the 7 sea driven by the wind and tossed. "For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord; (8 "a doubleminded man, unstable in all his ways.

"For the sun ariseth with the scorching wind, and withereth the grass; and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth so also shall the rich man fade away in his goings.


Blessed is the man that endureth temptation for when he hath been approved, he shall receive the crown of life, 13 which the Lord promised to them that love him.

20 man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: "for the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. (21 "Wherefore putting away all filthiness and overflowing of 3 wickedness, receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. "But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deluding your own selves. 23 "For if any one is a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a mirror : "for he beholdeth himself, and goeth away, and straight(25 way forgetteth what manner of man he was.

bridleth not his tongue but deceiveth his heart, this man's (27 religion is vain. "Pure religion and undefiled before our God and Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
