(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.

George's James Chapter 1 comment on 6/26/2015, 11:17am...

the book of James is powerful. its truth reveals all men and women as they should appear daily before God and in God 's will. this is a teaching that should be a daily guide for us to live by giving attention to the commandments of God.

 


Db's James Chapter 1 comment about verse 27 on 6/22/2015, 12:45pm...

This verse is so powerful, but often overlooked and rarely quoted. Scientific Research has pointed to the state of 'fatherlessness ' and its impact on the lives of many children who are categorized as 'at risk ' in our society - many of whom end up in dire circumstances as young adults. It makes one wonder if more people practicing Christianity took this definition of 'pure religion ' i.e. helping the fatherless and widows seriously what our world would be like.

 


Philip's James Chapter 1 comment on 6/21/2015, 5:43am...

Temptation is one of the greatest tool the Devil uses against God 's children. Don 't fall for the bait... that 's the reason why we were cautioned to be wise as serpents and be harmless as doves. By divine insight we know when the Devil applies his tricks from him or via his agents...

 


MR.ALON CHARLES's James Chapter 1 comment on 6/16/2015, 6:01pm...

I think James chapter 1 is just like the rest of the word of GOD,a very spiritual high not only through reading it,but applying it to one 's life.

 


Diane Jenkins's James Chapter 1 comment about verse 12 on 6/01/2015, 10:36am...

I really Live this : Cause we are all tempted and I feel reading about this helps us to stay strong in the Lord !!!

 


Anita from Daytona beach fl.'s James Chapter 1 comment about verse 12 on 5/31/2015, 12:30pm...

If we stay away from any temptation especially when the devil knows that we want something that bad he will but just cause of us having it now when the Lord tells us to wait on him because he has a purpose. So we must learn to wait on God. He has something better and a wonderful purpose. Just wait God,s children.This purpose speaks for me as well.

 


MockingBird's James Chapter 1 comment about verse 12 on 5/31/2015, 7:35am...

For every transgression and disobedience there is a just recompence of reward : I will be forgiven and cleansed when I confess that sin : at the same time I will also reap a just recompence of reward. David the king faced it : He was forgiven for killing Uriah the Hittite at the same time the sword was on his house hold till the day he died !!!! I must be very wise to not yield to any temptation !!!!

 


Kehinde Isaac. O's James Chapter 1 comment about verse 22 on 5/13/2015, 6:13am...

In my own point of view, the scripture is telling us that even as you've been taught, you must continuously be regurgitating the word and that the word must be part of, let the kind of life you live always interpret what you have been thought i.e Christ .......
