1 From James, servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ. Greetings to the twelve tribes of the Dispersion.
1Pet 1:1  Ezek 12:15  Acts 26:7  Titus 1:1  2Pet 1:1  Gal 2:9  Acts 15:23 

2 My brothers, consider it a great joy when trials of many kinds come upon you,
1Pet 1:6-8  Jas 1:12  Matt 5:10-12  Luke 6:22-23  2Cor 12:9-10  Phil 1:29  Rom 8:17-18 

3 for you well know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance, and
Rom 5:3-4  1Pet 1:7  Heb 10:36  Col 1:11  2Cor 4:17  2Pet 1:6  Rom 8:28 

4 perseverance must complete its work so that you will become fully developed, complete, not deficient in any way.
Matt 5:48  2Tim 3:17  Hab 2:3  Luke 21:19  1Pet 5:10  Col 4:12  Gal 6:9 

5 Any of you who lacks wisdom must ask God, who gives to all generously and without scolding; it will be given.
Prov 2:3-6  John 15:7  Jer 29:12-13  1Kgs 3:7-12  Prov 3:5-7  2Chr 1:10  Matt 7:7-11 

6 But the prayer must be made with faith, and no trace of doubt, because a person who has doubts is like the waves thrown up in the sea by the buffeting of the wind.
Matt 21:21-22  Eph 4:14  Heb 11:6  Mark 11:22-24  Heb 10:23  Heb 13:9  1Tim 2:8 

7 That sort of person, in two minds,
Jas 4:3  Isa 58:3-4  Prov 15:8  Prov 21:27  Isa 1:15 

8 inconsistent in every activity, must not expect to receive anything from the Lord.
1Kgs 18:21  Jas 4:8  Matt 6:24  2Pet 2:14  Isa 29:13  2Kgs 17:41  2Pet 3:16 

9 It is right that the brother in humble circumstances should glory in being lifted up,
Jer 9:23-24  Jas 2:5-6  Ps 62:9  2Cor 6:10  1John 3:1-3  1Pet 2:9  Deut 15:7 

10 and the rich in being brought low. For the rich will last no longer than the wild flower;
1Pet 1:24  1John 2:17  1Tim 6:17  Job 14:2  1Cor 7:31  Isa 40:6  Jas 4:14 

11 the scorching sun comes up, and the grass withers, its flower falls, its beauty is lost. It is the same with the rich: in the middle of a busy life, the rich will wither.
Isa 40:7-8  1Pet 1:4  Eccl 5:15  Ps 37:35-36  Ps 73:18-20  Ps 102:4  Ps 102:11 

12 Blessed is anyone who perseveres when trials come. Such a person is of proven worth and will win the prize of life, the crown that the Lord has promised to those who love him.
1Pet 5:10  1Pet 1:6-8  Rom 8:28  Rev 2:10  Jas 5:11  2Tim 4:8  Matt 10:22 

13 Never, when you are being put to the test, say, 'God is tempting me'; God cannot be tempted by evil, and he does not put anybody to the test .
Gen 3:12  Hab 2:12-13  Jas 1:2  Jas 1:12  Isa 63:17  Rom 9:19-20 

14 Everyone is put to the test by being attracted and seduced by that person's own wrong desire.
Mark 7:21-22  Eph 4:22  Matt 15:18  Heb 3:13  Isa 44:20  Jas 4:1-2  Job 31:9 

15 Then the desire conceives and gives birth to sin, and when sin reaches full growth, it gives birth to death.
Ps 7:14  Job 15:35  Gen 2:17  Isa 59:4  Rom 5:12-21  Gen 3:6  Mic 2:1-3 

16 Make no mistake about this, my dear brothers:
Jas 1:19  Gal 6:7  Jas 2:5  Phil 2:12  1Cor 6:9  2Tim 2:18  Col 2:4 

17 all that is good, all that is perfect, is given us from above; it comes down from the Father of all light; with him there is no such thing as alteration, no shadow caused by change.
John 3:27  Matt 7:11  1John 1:5  Heb 13:8  Num 23:19  Jas 3:17  Mal 3:6 

18 By his own choice he gave birth to us by the message of the truth so that we should be a sort of first-fruits of all his creation.
1Pet 1:23  John 1:13  Rom 8:29-31  1Pet 1:3  2Thess 2:13-14  John 3:3-5  Rev 14:4 

19 Remember this, my dear brothers: everyone should be quick to listen but slow to speak and slow to human anger;
Prov 17:27  Prov 10:19  Prov 21:23  Prov 18:13  Prov 14:29  Prov 13:3  Prov 16:32 

20 God's saving justice is never served by human anger;
2Tim 2:24-25  Eph 4:26  Jas 3:17-18  Num 20:11-12 

21 so do away with all impurities and remnants of evil. Humbly welcome the Word which has been planted in you and can save your souls.
Eph 4:22  Eph 1:13  John 6:63  Ps 25:9  1Pet 2:1  1Pet 2:11  Heb 12:1 

22 But you must do what the Word tells you and not just listen to it and deceive yourselves.
Rom 2:13  John 13:17  Luke 6:46-48  1John 2:3  Jas 4:17  Matt 12:50  Jas 2:14-20 

23 Anyone who listens to the Word and takes no action is like someone who looks at his own features in a mirror and,
Matt 7:26-27  Jas 2:14-26  Ezek 33:31-32  Jer 44:16  Luke 6:47  Luke 6:7 

24 once he has seen what he looks like, goes off and immediately forgets it.
2Pet 3:11  1Thess 1:5  Judg 8:18  Luke 1:66  Luke 7:39  Matt 8:27 

25 But anyone who looks steadily at the perfect law of freedom and keeps to it -- not listening and forgetting, but putting it into practice -- will be blessed in every undertaking.
1Pet 2:16  Luke 11:28  John 13:17  2Cor 3:17-18  Gal 5:1  Jas 2:12  Luke 6:47-49 

26 Nobody who fails to keep a tight rein on the tongue can claim to be religious; this is mere self-deception; that person's religion is worthless.
Ps 141:3  Eph 4:29  1Pet 3:10  Ps 34:13  Jas 3:2-6  Prov 10:31  Jas 1:22 

27 Pure, unspoilt religion, in the eyes of God our Father, is this: coming to the help of orphans and widows in their hardships, and keeping oneself uncontaminated by the world.
Isa 1:16-17  1John 3:17-19  Matt 25:34-46  Rom 12:2  1John 2:15-17  Gal 6:9-10  1Tim 5:4
