New Testament The Epistle of James

01 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God-Resist temptation-Be doers of the word-James explains how to recognize pure religion. 02 God has chosen the poor of this world who are rich in faith-Salvation is gained by keeping the whole law-Faith without works is dead. 03 By governing the tongue, we gain perfection-Heavenly wisdom is pure, peaceable, and full of mercy. 04 Wars are born of lusts-The friends of the world are the enemies of God-Sin is failure to walk in the light we have received. 05 Misery awaits the wanton rich-Await the Lord's coming with patience-The elders are to anoint and heal the sick.
