Chapter 1 2 3 4 5

X James

1:1 James, a servant of Elohim and of the Master YASHUWAH the Messiah, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.

X James

1:2 My brethren, count it all joy when you* fall into divers temptations.

X James

1:3 Knowing this, that the trying of your* faith works patience.

X James

1:4 But let patience have her perfect work, that you* may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

X James

1:5 If any of you* lacks wisdom, let him ask of Elohim, who gives to all men liberally, and upbraids not; and it shall be given to him.

X James

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.

X James

1:7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing from YASHUWAH.

X James

1:8 A man unsettled in his opinions is unstable in all his ways.

X James

1:9 Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:

X James

1:10 But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.

X James

1:11 For the sun has no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withers the grass, and its flower falls, and the grace of the fashion of it perishes: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.

X James

1:12 Blessed is the man that endures temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which YASHUWAH has promised to them that love him.

X James

1:13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted by Elohim: for Elohim cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempts he any man:

X James

1:14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed.

X James

1:15 Then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, brings forth death.

X James

1:16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.

X James

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.

X James

1:18 Of his own will he has begotten us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first-fruits of his creatures.

X James

1:19 Therefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:

X James

1:20 For the wrath of man works not the righteousness of Elohim.

X James

1:21 Therefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the ingrafted word, which is able to save your* souls.

X James

1:22 But be you* doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your* own selves.

X James

1:23 For if any is a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

X James

1:24 For he beholds himself, and goes away, and immediately forgets what manner of man he was.

X James

1:25 But he who looks into the perfect law of freedom, and continues in it, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

X James

1:26 If any man among you* seems to be believer, and bridles not his tongue, but deceives his own heart, this man's faith is vain.

X James

1:27 Pure belief and undefiled before Elohim and the Father is this, To visit to the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

X James

2:1 My brethren, have not the faith of our Master YASHUWAH the Messiah, the Master of glory, with respect of persons.

X James

2:2 For if there come into your* assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;

X James

2:3 And you* have respect to him that wears luxury clothing, and say to him, Sit you here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand you there, or sit here under my footstool:

X James

2:4 Are you* not then partial in yourselves*, and are become judges of evil thoughts?

X James

2:5 Listen, my beloved brethren, Has not Elohim chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he has promised to them that love him?

X James

2:6 But you* have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you*, and draw you* before the judgment-seats?

X James

2:7 Do they not blaspheme that worthy name by the which you* are called?

X James

2:8 If you* fulfill the royal law according to the scripture, You shall love your neighbor as yourself, you* do well:

X James

2:9 But if you* have respect to persons, you* commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors.

X James

2:10 For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

X James

2:11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery; said also, Do not kill. Now if you commit no adultery, yet if you kill, you are become a transgressor of the law.

X James

2:12 So speak you*, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of freedom.

X James

2:13 For he shall have judgment without mercy that has shown no mercy; and mercy rejoices against judgment.

X James

2:14 What does it profit, my brethren, though a man says he has faith, and has not works? can faith save him?

X James

2:15 If a brother or sister is naked, and forsaken of daily food,

X James

2:16 And one of you* says to them, Depart in peace, be you* warmed and filled; although you* give them not those things which are needful to the body; what does it profit?

X James

2:17 Even so faith, if it has not works, is dead, being alone.

X James

2:18 Also a man may say, You have faith, and I have works: show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.

X James

2:19 You believe that there is one Elohim; you do well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

X James

2:20 But will you know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

X James

2:21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?

X James

2:22 See you how faith worked with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?

X James

2:23 And the scripture was fulfilled, which says, Abraham believed Elohim, and it was imputed to him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of Elohim.

X James

2:24 You* see then that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.

X James

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?

X James

2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

X James

3:1 My brethren, be not many teachers, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.

X James

3:2 For in many things we all offend. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.

X James

3:3 Behold, we put bits in the mouths of horses, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.

X James

3:4 Behold also the ships, which though they are so great, and are driven by fierce winds, yet they are turned about with a very small helm, withersoever the governor wills.

X James

3:5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasts great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindles!

X James

3:6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire from hell.

X James

3:7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of animals in the sea, is tamed, and has been tamed by mankind:

X James

3:8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.

X James

3:9 With this we bless Elohim, even the Father; and with this we curse men, who are made after the similitude of Elohim.

X James

3:10 Out of the same mouth proceeds blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

X James

3:11 Does a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?

X James

3:12 Can the fig-tree, my brethren, bear olive-berries? or a vine, figs? so no fountain can yield both salt water and fresh.

X James

3:13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you*? let him show by a good deportment his works with meekness of wisdom.

X James

3:14 But if you* have bitter envying and strife in your* hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.

X James

3:15 This wisdom descends not from above, but is earthly, sensual, demoniacal.

X James

3:16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

X James

3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

X James

3:18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by them that make peace.

X James

4:1 From from where come wars and fightings among you*? come they not from here, even from your* lusts that war in your* members?

X James

4:2 You* lust and have not: you* kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: you* fight and war, yet you* have not, because you* ask not.

X James

4:3 You* ask, and receive not, because you* ask amiss, that you* may consume it upon your* lusts.

X James

4:4 You* adulterers and adulteresses, know you* not that the friendship of the world is enmity with Elohim? whoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of Elohim.

X James

4:5 Do you* think that the scripture says in vain, The spirit that dwells in us lusts to envy?

X James

4:6 But he gives more grace. Therefore he says, Elohim resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.

X James

4:7 Submit yourselves* therefore to Elohim. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you*.

X James

4:8 Draw near to Elohim, and he will draw near to you*. Cleanse your* hands, you* sinners, and purify your* hearts, you* double-minded.

X James

4:9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your* laughter be turned to mourning, and your* joy to heaviness.

X James

4:10 Humble yourselves* in the sight of YASHUWAH, and he will lift you* up.

X James

4:11 Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaks evil of his brother, and judges his brother, speaks evil of the law, and judges the law: but if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law, but a judge.

X James

4:12 There is one lawgiver, who is able to save, and to destroy: who are you that judge another?

X James

4:13 Come now, you* that say, To-day or to-morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy, and sell, and get gain:

X James

4:14 Whereas you* know not what will be on to-morrow: For what is your* life? It is even a vapor, that appears for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

X James

4:15 Instead of that you* ought to say, If YASHUWAH will, we shall live, and do this, or that.

X James

4:16 But now you* rejoice in your* boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.

X James

4:17 Therefore to him that knows to do good, and does it not, to him it is sin.

X James

5:1 Come now, you* rich men, weep and howl for your* miseries that shall come upon you*.

X James

5:2 Your* riches are corrupted, and your* garments are moth-eaten.

X James

5:3 Your* gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a testimony against you*, and shall eat your* flesh as it were fire. You* have stored up treasure for the last days.

X James

5:4 Behold, the wages of the laborers who have reaped your* fields, which is by you* kept back by fraud, cries: and the cries of them who have reaped have entered into the ears of YASHUWAH of hosts.

X James

5:5 You* have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wayward; you* have nourished your* hearts, as in a day of slaughter.

X James

5:6 You* have condemned and killed the just; and he does not resist you*.

X James

5:7 Be patient, therefore, brethren, to the coming of the Master. Behold, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, and has long patience for it, until he receives the early and the latter rain.

X James

5:8 Be you* also patient; establish your* hearts; for the coming of the Master draws near.

X James

5:9 Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest you* be condemned: behold, the judge stands before the door.

X James

5:10 Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of YASHUWAH, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.

X James

5:11 Behold, we count them happy who endure. You* have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of YASHUWAH; that YASHUWAH is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.

X James

5:12 But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your* yea, be yea: and your* nay, nay; lest you* fall into condemnation.

X James

5:13 Is any among you* afflicted? let him pray. Is any cheerful? let him sing songs.

X James

5:14 Is any sick among you*? let him call for the elders of the assembly; and let them pray over him, anointing him with virgin olive oil in the name of the Master YASHUWAH the Messiah:

X James

5:15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and YASHUWAH will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him.

X James

5:16 Confess your* faults one to another, and pray one for another, that you* may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of the righteous man avails much.

X James

5:17 Elijah was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

X James

5:18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth its fruit.

X James

5:19 Brethren, if any one of you* should err from the truth, and one should convert him;

X James

5:20 Let him know, that he who converts a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death, and will hide a multitude of sins.
