1 My brethren, a not the faith of our b, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.
2 For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a a man in b raiment;
3 And ye have respect to him that weareth the a clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:
4 a ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?
5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the a 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 a you, and draw you before the judgment seats?
7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy a by the which ye are called?
8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt a thy b as thyself, ye do well:
9 But if ye have a to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
10 For whosoever shall keep the a law, and yet b in one point, he is c of all.
11 For he that said, Do not commit a, 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 a.
13 For he shall have a without b, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.
14 a doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath b, and have not works? can faith save him?
15 If a a or sister be naked, and destitute of daily b,
16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye a them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
17 Even so a, if it hath not b, is dead, being alone.
18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my a by my b.
19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the a also b, and tremble.
20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that a without b is dead?
21 Was not Abraham our father a by works, when he had b Isaac his son upon the altar?
22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by a was faith made b?
23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham a God, and it was imputed unto him for b: and he was called the c of God.
24 Ye see then how that by a a man is b, and not by faith only.
25 Likewise also was not a the harlot b by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?
26 For as the body without the a is b, so faith without c is dead also.
