superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with
meekness the ingrafted word, « which is able
to save your souls.

22 But f be ye doers of the word, and not
hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

23 For s if any be a hearer of the word,
and not a doer, he is like unto a man be-
holding his natural face in a glass :

24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth
his way, and straightway forgetteth what
manner of man he was.
. 25 But ''whoso looketh into the perfect
'law of liberty, and continueth therein, he
being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of
the work, ^ this man shall be blessed in his
II deed.

26 If any man among you seem to be
rehgious, and ' bridleth not his tongue, but
deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion
is vain.

27 Pure religion and undefiled before
God and the Father is this, " To visit the
fatherless and widows in their affliction, "and
to keep himself unspotted from the world.

CHAP. II.

1 It is not agreeable to Christian profession to regard the
rich, and to despise the poor brethren : 13 rather we
are to be loving, and merciful : 14 and not to boast of
faith where no deeds are ; 17 which is but a dead faith,
19 the faith of devils, 21 not of Abraham, 25 and
Jlahdb.

MY bftthren, have not the faith of our
Lord Jesus Christ, ^ the Lord of glory,
with •> respect of persons.

2 For if there come unto your fassembly,
a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel,
and there come in also a poor man in vile
raiment;

3 And ye have respect to him that wear-
eth the gay clothing, and say unto him.
Sit thou here || in a good place ; and say

Faith without works is dead.

to the poor. Stand thou there, or sit here
under my footstool :

4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves,
and are become judges of evil thoughts ?

5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, " Hath
not God chosen the poor of this world
^ rich in faith, and heirs of || the kingdom
« which he hath promised to them that love
him ?

6 But '■ye have despised the poor. Do
not rich men oppress yoH, sand draw you
before the judgment-seats ?

7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy
name by the which ye are caUed ?

8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to
the scripture, '■Thou shalt love thy neighbour
as thyself, ye do well :

9 But ' if ye have respect to persons, ye
commit sin, and are convinced of the Jaw as
transgressors.

10 For whosoever shall keep the whole
law, and yet offend in one point, ^ he is
guilty of all.

11 For II he that said, 'Do not commit
adultery ; said also. Do not kill. Now if
thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill,
thou art become a transgressor of the law.

12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that
shall be judged by ■" the law of liberty.

13 For ° he shall have judgment with-
out mercy that hath shewed no mercy; and
° mercy || rejoiceth against judgment.

14 P What doth it profit, my brethren,
though a man say he hath faith, and have not
works ? can faith save him ?

15 9 If a brother or sister be naked, and
destitute of daily food,

16 And ' one of you say unto them. De-
part in peace, be ye warmed and filled; not-
withstanding ye give them not those things
which are needful to the body ; what doth it
profit ?

17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is
dead, being f alone.

18 Yea, a man may say. Thou hast faith,
and I have works : shew me thy faith || with-
out thy works, ^ and I will shew thee my
faith by my works.

19 Thou believest that there is one God;
thou doest well: 'the devils also believe, and
tremble.

20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that
faith without works is dead ?

21 Was not Abraham our father justified*
by works, "when he had offered Isaac his son
upon the altar ?

22 II Seest thou '= how faith wrought with
his works, and by works was faith made
perfect ?

23 And the scripture was fulfilled, which

1013



Of governing the tongue.

saith, y Abraham believe'd God, and it was
imputed unto him for righteousness : and
he was called ^ the Friend of God.

24 Ye see then how that by works a man
is justified, and not by faith only.

25 Likewise also ''was not Rahab the
harlot justified by works, when she had re-
ceived the messengers, and had sent them
out another way ?

26 For as the body without the || spirit is
dead, so faith without works is dead also.

CHAP. III'.

1 We are not rashly or arrogantly to reprove others :
5 but rather to bridle the tongiie, a little member, but
a powerful instrument of much good, and great harm.
13 They loho be truly wise be mild, and peaceable,
without envying, and strife.

MY brethren, "be not many masters,
.'■ knowing that we shall receive the
greater || condemnation.

2 For "in many things we offend all.
^ If any man offend not in word, « the same
is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the
whole body.

3 Behold, ""we put bits in the horses'
mouths, that they may obey us ; and we turn
about their whole body.

4 Behold also the ships, which, though
they he so great, and are driven of fierce
winds, yet are they turned about with a very
small helm, whithersoever the governor list-
eth.

5 Even so ethe tongue is a little member,
and •• boasteth great things. Beholdj how
great || a matter a little fire kindleth !

6 And ' the tongue is a fire, a world of
iniquity : so is the tongue among our mem-
bers, that ^ it defileth the whole body, and
setteth on fire the t course of nature ; and it
is set on fire of hell.

7 For every fkind of beasts, and of birds,
and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is
tamed, and hath been tamed, of f mankind :

8 But the tongue can no man tame ; it is
an unruly evil, ' full of deadly poison.

9 Therewith bless we God, even the Fa-
ther ; and therewith curse we men, ■" which
are made after the similitude of God.

10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth
blessing and cursing. My brethren, these
things ought not so to be. -

1 1 Doth a fountain send forth at the same
Jl place sweet water and bitter?

12 Can the fig-tree, my brethren, bear
olive-berries ? either a vine, figs ? so can no
fountain both yield salt water and fresh.

13 "Who is a wise man and endued with
knowledge among you ? let him shew out
of a good conversation " his works p with
meekness of wisdom.

Against covetousness, intemperance, Sfc.

14 But if ye have ■) bitter envying and
strife in your hearts, ■■ glory not, and lie not
against the truth.

15 * This wisdom descendeth not from
above, but is earthly, || sensual, devilish.

16 For 'where envying and strife is, there
is t confusion and every evil work.

17 But "the wisdom that is from above
is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy
t6 be entreated, full of mercy and good
fruits, II without partiality, ^ and without hy-
pocrisy.

18 yAnd the fruit of righteousness is sown'^
in peace of them that make peace.

CHAP. IV.

1 We are to strive against covetousness, 4 intemperance,
5 pride, 1 1 detraction, and rash judgment of others :
13 and not to be confident in the good success of worldly
business, but mindful ever of the uncertainty of this
life, to commit ourselves and all our affairs to God's
providence.

FROM whence come wars and || fightings
among you? come they not hence, even
of your II lusts ''that war in your members?

2 Ye lust and have not : ye || kill, and
desire to have, and cannot obtain : ye fight
and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask
not.

3 •" Ye ask, and rfeceive not, " because ye
ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon
your II lusts.

4 "^ Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know
ye not that ^the friendship of the world is
enmity with God ? *" whosoever therefore
will be a friend of the world is the enemy
of God.

5 Do ye think that the scripture saith
in vain, ^The spirit that dwelleth in us
lusteth II to envy?

6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore
he saith, ^ God resisteth the proud, but giv-
eth grace unto the humble.

7 Submit yourselves therefore to God.
' Resist the devil, and he will flee from
you.

8 ''Draw nigh to God, and he will draw
nigh to you. ' Cleanse your hands, ye sin-
ners, and "» purify your hearts, ye " double-
minded.

9 ° Be afflicted, and mourn, arid weep :
let your laughter be turned to mourning,
and your joy to heaviness.

10 P Humble yourselves in the sight of
the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

11 1 Speak not evil one of another, bre-
thren. He that speaketh evil of his bro-
ther, 'and judgeth his brother, speaketh
evil of the law, and judgeth the law : but
if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of
the law, but a judge.

Wicked rich men threatened.

12 There is one lawgiver, » who is able
to save, and to destroy : » who art thou that
judgest another ?

13 " Go to now, ye that say, To-day or
to-morrow we will go into such a city, and
continue there a year, and buy, and sell, and
get gain :

14 Whereas ye know not what shall he on
the morrow. For what is your life ? || ^ It
is even a vapour, that appeareth for a httle
time, and then vanisheth away.

15 For that ye ought to say, ylf the
Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or
that.

16 But now ye rejoice in your boastings :

* all such rejoicing is evil.

17 Therefore * to him that knoweth to do
good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

CHAP. V.

1 Wicked rick men are to fear God's vengeance. 7 We
ought to be patient in ajjlictions, after the example of
the prophets, and Job : 12 to forbear swearing, 13 to
pray in adversity, to sing in prosperity : 16 to acknow-
ledge mutually our several faults, to pray one for
another, 19 and to reduce a straying brother to the
truth.

&0 »-to now, ye rich men, weep and
howl for your miseries that shall come
upon you.

2 Your riches are corrupted, and ''your
garments are moth-eaten.

3 Your gold and silver is cankered ; and
the rust of them shall be a witness against
you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire.

* Ye have heaped treasure together for the
last days.

4 Behold, ^ the hire of the labourers who
have reaped down your fields, which is of you
kept back by fraud, crieth; and *the cries of
them which have reaped are entered into the
ears of the Lord of sabaoth.

5 '"Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth,
and been wanton ; ye have nourished your
hearts, as in a day of slaughter. %

6 s Ye , have condemned and killed the
just; and he doth not resist you.

7 II Be patient therefore, brethren, unto
the coming of the Lord. Behold, the hus-
bandman waiteth for the precious fruit of

brethren, lest ye be condemned : behold, the

patience.

11 Behold, "we count them happy which
endure. Ye have heard of "the patience

Lord; that ^the Lord is very pitiful, and
of tender mercy.

12 But above all things, my brethren,
' swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the
earth, neither by any other oath : but let
your yea, be yea ; and your nay, nay ; lest
ye fall into condemnation.

13 Is any among you afflicted ? let him
pray. Is any merry? "let him ^ng psalms.

14 Is an^ sick among you? let him call
for the elders of the church ; and let them
pray over him, ' anointing him with oil in
the name of the Lord :

15 And the prayer of faith shall save the
sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; " and
if he have committed sins, they shall be
forgiven him.

16 Confess your faults one to another,
and pray one for another, that ye may be
healed. * The effectual fervent prayer of a
righteous man availeth much.

passions as we are, and ^ he prayed || earnestly
that it might not rain: ^and it rained not on
the earth by the space of three years and
six months.

18 And ''he prayed again, and the heaven
gave rain, and the earth brought forth her
fruit.

19 Brethren, " if any of you do err from
the truth, and one convert him ;

20 Let him know, that he which con-
verteth the sinner from the error of his
way ■* shall save a soul from death, and
^ shall hide a multitude of sins.

PETER.



CHAP. I.

1 He blesseth God for his manifold spiritual graces :
10 shewing that the salvation in Christ is no news, but
a thing prophesied of old : 13 and exhorteth them ac-
cordingly to a godly conversation, forasmuch as they

unto you by them that have preached the
gospel unto you, with *the Holy Ghost sent
down from heaven; '"which things the angels
desire to look into.

13 Wherefore sgird up the loins of your
mind, ''be sober, and hope tto the end for
the grace that is to be brought unto you 'at
^the revelation of Jesus Christ :

14 As obedient children, ''not fashioning
yourselves according to the former lusts 'in
your ignorance :

15 ■" But as he which hath called you ia
holy, so be ye holy in all manner of con-
versation ;

16 Because it is written, "Be ye holy; for
I am holy.

17 And if ye call on the Father, ° who
without respect of persons judgeth accord-
ing to every man's work, p pass the time of
your 1 sojourning here in fear :

18 Forasmuch as ye know ■'that ye were
not redeemed with corruptible things, as
silver and gold, from your vain conver-
sation " received by tradition from your fa-
thers ;

19 But 'with the precious blood of Christ,
" as of a lamb without blemish and without
spot :

20 ^Who verily was fore-ordained before
the foundation of the world, but was mani-
fest y in these last times for you,

21 Who by him do believe in God, ^that
raised him up from the dead, alid * gave him
glory ; tMt your faith and hope might be in
God.

22 Seeing ye ''have purified your souls in
obeying the truth through the Spirit unto
unfeigned '^love of the brethren, see that
ye love one another with a pure heart fer-
vently :

23 ^ Being born again, not of corruptible
seed, but of incorruptible, *by the word of
God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

24 II For fall flesh is as grass, and all the
glory of man as the flower of grass. The
grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth
away:

25 e But the word of the Lord endureth
for ever. '■And this is the word which by
the gospel is preached unto you.

Christ is the foundation stone.
CHAP. II.

I He dehor teth them from the breach of charity: 4 shew-
ing that Christ is the foundation whereon they are
built. \\ He beseecheth them also to abstain from
Jkshly lusts, 13 to be obedient to magistrates, 18 and
teacheth servants how to obey their master s,2Q patiently
suffering for well-doing, after the example of Christ.

WHEREFORE, " laying aside all malice,
and all guile, and hypocrisies, and
envies, and all evil-speakings,

2 •> As newf-born babes, desire the sincere
"=milk of the word, that ye may grow there-
by:

3 If so be ye have ^ tasted that the Lord
is gracious :

4 To whom coming as unto a living stone,
"disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of
God, and precious,

5 ^ Ye also, as lively stones, || are built up
e a spiritual house, '' an holy priesthood, to
offer up 'spiritual sacrifices, ■'acceptable to
God by Jesus Christ.

6 Wherefore also it is contained in the
scripture, • Behold, I lay in Sion a chief
corner-stone, elect, precious : and he that
