James 2

1 - My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, [the Lord] of glory, with respect of persons.
2 - For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;
3 - And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:
4 - Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?
5 - Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
6 - But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?
7 - Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?
8 - If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
9 - But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
10 - For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one [point], he is guilty of all.
11 - For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.
12 - So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.
13 - For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.
14 - What [doth it] profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
15 - If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,
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?
17 - Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
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.
19 - Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
20 - But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
21 - Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
22 - Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
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.
24 - Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.
25 - Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent [them] out another way?
26 - For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
