“For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:”
King James Version (KJV)
1:23 Beholding his face in a glass - How exactly does the scripture glass show a man the face of his soul!
Jas 1:23,24 He is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass. The point of the comparison is this: Like a man who looks in the glass and soon forgets the impression, so the impression of the word on such a man is soon forgotten. The word must be impressed by the doing of it.
