(APB) James 1 : 1 Yaqob the Servant of God and of our Lord Yeshua The Messiah to the twelve tribes which are scattered among the nations: Peace.
(APB) James 1 : 2 May you have every joy, my brethren, when you enter various and many temptations,
(APB) James 1 : 3 For you know that the trial of faith imparts to you patience.
(APB) James 1 : 4 But patience will have a complete work for itself that you would be perfected and complete, and that you would be lacking nothing.
(APB) James 1 : 5 But if anyone of you lacks wisdom, let him ask from God who gives to everyone simply, and does not reproach, and it will be given to him.
(APB) James 1 : 6 But let him ask in faith, without wavering, for he who wavers is like the waves of the sea which the wind troubles,
(APB) James 1 : 7 And let not that man think he will receive anything from THE LORD JEHOVAH.
(APB) James 1 : 8 Whoever wavers in his mind is troubled in all his ways.
(APB) James 1 : 9 But let the poor brother boast in his exaltation,
(APB) James 1 : 10 And the rich man in his humiliation, because as a blossom of the grass, so he passes away.
(APB) James 1 : 11 For the sun rises with its heat and shrivels the grass and the blossom falls and the beauty of its appearance is destroyed. So also the rich man fades in his ways.
(APB) James 1 : 12 Blessed is the man who endures temptation, for when he has been tested, he will receive a crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.
(APB) James 1 : 13 A man should not say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God”, for God is not acquainted with evil and he does not tempt a man.
(APB) James 1 : 14 But each man is tempted from his own desire, and he lusts and he is seduced.
(APB) James 1 : 15 And this desire becomes pregnant and gives birth to sin, but sin, when it has matured, gives birth to death.
(APB) James 1 : 16 Do not go astray, my beloved brethren.
(APB) James 1 : 17 Every good and perfect gift descends from above, from The Father of lights with whom there is no change nor a shadow of variation.
(APB) James 1 : 18 He was pleased and gave birth to us by the word of the truth, that we would be the first fruits of his creation.
(APB) James 1 : 19 And you, my beloved brethren, everyone of you should be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger.
(APB) James 1 : 20 For the rage of man does not perform the righteousness of God.
(APB) James 1 : 21 Therefore put away from you all abomination and the multitude of evils and in humility accept the word which is planted in our nature, which is able to save these souls of yours.
(APB) James 1 : 22 But be a doer of the word and not only a hearer, and do not deceive yourselves.
(APB) James 1 : 23 For if a man will be a hearer of the word and not a doer of it, this one is like one who sees his face in a mirror,
(APB) James 1 : 24 For he sees himself and passes by and forgets how he was.
(APB) James 1 : 25 But everyone who gazes into The Perfect Law of Liberty and continues in it, he is not a hearer who heard what is forgotten, but is a doer of the works, and this one shall be blessed in his work.
(APB) James 1 : 26 And if a man thinks that he serves God, and does not hold his tongue, but deceives his heart, this person's service is worthless.
(APB) James 1 : 27 For pure and holy ministry before God The Father is this: to take care of orphans and widows in their affliction, and for a man to keep his soul without defilement from the world.
