“Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:”
King James Version (KJV)
1:9 Let the brother - St James does not give this appellation to the rich. Of low degree - Poor and tempted. Rejoice - The most effectual remedy against doublemindedness. In that he is exalted - To be a child of God, and an heir of glory.
Jas 1:9 Let the brother of low degree. In the humble walks of life. Rejoice in that he is exalted. To be a child of God, a brother of Jesus Christ.
