James 1:19-25

James 1:19-25
“19) Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
20) For the wrath of man works not the righteousness of God.
21) Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
22) But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
23) For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
24) For he beholds himself, and goes his way, and straightway forgets what manner of man he was.
25) But whoso looks into the perfect law of liberty, and continues therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man will be blessed in his deed.”

James 1:13-15

James 1:13-15
“13) Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted by God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempts He any man:
14) But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed.
15) Then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, brings forth death.”
