(this is a scan from the exact, authentic, original 1611 'HE' King James Bible)

1 Iames a seruant of God, and of the Lord Iesus Christ, to the twelue Tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.

2 My brethren, count it all ioy when ye fall into diuers temptations,

3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience,

4 But let patience haue her perfect worke, that ye may be perfect, and entier, wanting nothing.

5 If any of you lacke wisedome, let him aske of God, that giueth to all men liberally, and vpbraideth not: and it shalbe giuen him.

6 But let him aske in faith, nothing wauering: for he that wauereth is like a waue of the sea, driuen with the wind, and tossed.

7 For let not that man thinke that he shall receiue any thing of the Lord.

8 A double minded man is vnstable in all his wayes.

9 Let the brother of low degree, reioyce in that he is exalted:

10 But the rich, in that hee is made low: because as the floure of the grasse he shall passe away.

11 For the Sunne is no sooner risen with a burning heate, but it withereth the grasse; and the flowre thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his wayes.

12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when hee is tried, hee shall receiue the crowne of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that loue him.

13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with euill, neither tempteth he any man.

14 But euery man is tempted, when hee is drawen away of his owne lust, and entised.

15 Then when lust hath conceiued, it bringeth forth sinne: and sinne, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

16 Doe not erre, my beloued brethren.

17 Euery good gift, and euery perfect gift is from aboue, & commeth downe from the Father of lights, with whom is no variablenesse, neither shadow of turning.

18 Of his owne will begate hee vs, with the word of Trueth, that wee should bee a kinde of first fruites of his creatures.

19 Wherefore my beloued brethren, let euery man bee swift to heare, slow to speake, slow to wrath.

20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousnesse of God.

21 Wherefore lay apart all filthinesse, and superfluitie of naughtinesse, & receiue with meeknesse the engrafted word, which is able to saue your soules.

22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers onely, receiuing your owne selues.

23 For if any be a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like vnto a man beholding his naturall face in a glasse:

24 For hee beholdeth himselfe, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what maner of man he was.

25 But who so looketh into the perfect Law of libertie, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetfull hearer, but a doer of the worke, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

26 If any man among you seeme to be religious, & bridleth not his tongue, but deceiueth his owne heart, this mans religion is vaine.

27 Pure religion and vndefiled before God and the Father, is this, to visit the fatherlesse and widowes in their affliction, and to keepe himselfe vnspotted from the world.

JAMES CHAPTER 1 1 28 2015 8:15 PM This was written unto the 12 tribes of Israel, and to Jewish Christians. I do believe we can do it in our spiritual life of living. For it is written in EPHESIANS 2:8-9,12-13. TO GOD BE THE GLORY through unto the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour. A-men.

Our prayers are meaningless unless we pray in faith. We have to be born again in Christ to talk with God. That is the gift that God have us all.

I LIKE JAMES ONE OF THE MAIN THING IS TALKING ABOUT FAITH LORD BUILD MY FAITH EVERY DAY. OUR FAITH MUST REMAIN STRONG BECAUSE OF WHAT WE AS GODS CHILDREN ARE ABOUT TO FACE

 


Leola's James Chapter 1 comment on 1/11/2015, 7:52am...

I think that James is saying that when we resist temptation we are taming the flesh. The psalmist says, "that for in the flesh lies no good thing. " Once we have tamed the flesh a crown of life is our reward. We are being tried, or tested in other words to see how much we have grown in our faith. We are over comers when we resist temptation. Jesus resisted temptation in the wilderness,though his flesh was screaming for relief, in other words for sustenance. He did not bough down to its desires. He also did not bough down to filthy lucre, the offer of riches. He overcame, so we must also overcome.Though we may fail some of these trials, we are still under grace, and it is sufficient. Oh the beauty of the power of the blood covering. We can 't fail in the eyes of God but this should not prevent us from striving to do our best to overcome all temptations.

MockingBird's James Chapter 1 comment about verse 17 on 12/26/2014, 10:08am...

If it is good and if it is perfect then it came from God. I must take to heart that He said that the gift is both good and perfect. If one lacks another then it is not from God . It has to be in the light for God is light. Also there is no turning or variableness with Him. He does not change from one thing to another. God is so GOOOOOG !!!!
