Darby's Synopsis
   1: James, bondman of God and of [the] Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which [are] in the dispersion, greeting.
   2: Count it all joy, my brethren, when ye fall into various temptations,
   3: knowing that the proving of your faith works endurance.
   4: But let endurance have [its] perfect work, that ye may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
   5: But if any one of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all freely and reproaches not, and it shall be given to him:
   6: but let him ask in faith, nothing doubting. For he that doubts is like a wave of the sea driven by the wind and tossed about;
   7: for let not that man think that he shall receive anything from the Lord;
   8: [he is] a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
   9: But let the brother of low degree glory in his elevation,
   10: and the rich in his humiliation, because as [the] grass's flower he will pass away.
   11: For the sun has risen with its burning heat, and has withered the grass, and its flower has fallen, and the comeliness of its look has perished: thus the rich also shall wither in his goings.
   12: Blessed [is the] man who endures temptation; for, having been proved, he shall receive the crown of life, which He has promised to them that love him.
   13: Let no man, being tempted, say, I am tempted of God. For God cannot be tempted by evil things, and himself tempts no one.
   14: But every one is tempted, drawn away, and enticed by his own lust;
   15: then lust, having conceived, gives birth to sin; but sin fully completed brings forth death.
   16: Do not err, my beloved brethren.
   17: Every good gift and every perfect gift comes down from above, from the Father of lights, with whom is no variation nor shadow of turning.
   18: According to his own will begat he us by the word of truth, that we should be a certain first-fruits of his creatures.
   19: So that, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath;
   20: for man's wrath does not work God's righteousness.
   21: Wherefore, laying aside all filthiness and abounding of wickedness, accept with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
   22: But be ye doers of [the] word and not hearers only, beguiling yourselves.
   23: For if any man be a hearer of [the] word and not a doer, he is like to a man considering his natural face in a mirror:
   24: for he has considered himself and is gone away, and straightway he has forgotten what he was like.
   25: But he that fixes his view on [the] perfect law, that of liberty, and abides in [it], being not a forgetful hearer but a doer of [the] work, he shall be blessed in his doing.
   26: If any one think himself to be religious, not bridling his tongue, but deceiving his heart, this man's religion is vain.
   27: Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
