James
2 : 1 - My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.
2 : 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;
2 : 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:
2 : 4 - Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?
2 : 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?

2 : 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.
2 : 12 - So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.
2 : 13 - For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.
2 : 14 - What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
2 : 15 - If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,
2 : 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?
2 : 17 - Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
2 : 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.
2 : 19 - Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
2 : 20 - But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
2 : 21 - Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
2 : 22 - Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
2 : 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.
2 : 24 - Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.

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