James 1-17 (KJV)
 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,
to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.
 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall
into divers temptations;
 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith
 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye
may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that
giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not;
and it shall be given him.
 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering.
For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea
driven with the wind and tossed.
 For let not that man think that he shall
receive any thing of the Lord.
 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
 Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that
he is exalted:
 But the rich, in that he is made low:
because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.
 For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat,
but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof
falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth:
so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation:
for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown
of life, which the Lord hath promised to them
that love him.
 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted
of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil,
neither tempteth he any man:
 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of
his own lust, and enticed.
 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth
forth sin: and sin, when it is finished,
bringeth forth death.
 Do not err, my beloved brethren.
 Every good gift and every perfect gift is
from above, and cometh down from the Father
of lights, with whom is no variableness,
neither shadow of turning.
May your each moment be filled with God's peace!
