chapters: 1 2 3 4 5
EnglishLatin
21My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ of glory, with respect of persons.fratres mei nolite in personarum acceptione habere fidem Domini nostri Iesu Christi gloriae
22For if there shall come into your assembly a man having a golden ring, in fine apparel; and there shall come in also a poor man in mean attire:etenim si introierit in conventu vestro vir aureum anulum habens in veste candida introierit autem et pauper in sordido habitu
23And you have respect to him that is clothed with the fine apparel and shall say to him: Sit thou here well: but say to the poor man: Stand thou there, or: Sit under my footstool:et intendatis in eum qui indutus est veste praeclara et dixeritis tu sede hic bene pauperi autem dicatis tu sta illic aut sede sub scabillo pedum meorum
24Do you not judge within yourselves, and are become judges of unjust thoughts?nonne iudicatis apud vosmet ipsos et facti estis iudices cogitationum iniquarum
25Hearken, my dearest brethren: Hath not God chosen the poor in this world, rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which God hath promised to them that love him?audite fratres mei dilectissimi nonne Deus elegit pauperes in hoc mundo divites in fide et heredes regni quod repromisit Deus diligentibus se
26But you have dishonoured the poor man. Do not the rich oppress you by might? And do not they draw you before the judgment seats?vos autem exhonorastis pauperem nonne divites per potentiam opprimunt vos et ipsi trahunt vos ad iudicia
27Do not they blaspheme the good name that is invoked upon you?nonne ipsi blasphemant bonum nomen quod invocatum est super vos
28If then you fulfil the royal law, according to the scriptures: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself; you do well.si tamen legem perficitis regalem secundum scripturas diliges proximum tuum sicut te ipsum bene facitis
29But if you have respect to persons, you commit sin, being reproved by the law as transgressors.si autem personas accipitis peccatum operamini redarguti a lege quasi transgressores
210And whosoever shall keep the whole law, but offend in one point, is become guilty of all.quicumque autem totam legem servaverit offendat autem in uno factus est omnium reus
211For he that said: Thou shalt not commit adultery, said also: Thou shalt not kill. Now if thou do not commit adultery, but shalt kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.qui enim dixit non moechaberis dixit et non occides quod si non moechaberis occides autem factus es transgressor legis
212So speak ye and so do, as being to be judged by the law of liberty.sic loquimini et sic facite sicut per legem libertatis incipientes iudicari
213For judgment without mercy to him that hath not done mercy. And mercy exalteth itself above judgment.iudicium enim sine misericordia illi qui non fecit misericordiam superexultat autem misericordia iudicio
214What shall it profit, my brethren, if a man say he hath faith, but hath not works? Shall faith be able to save him?quid proderit fratres mei si fidem quis dicat se habere opera autem non habeat numquid poterit fides salvare eum
215And if a brother or sister be naked and want daily food:si autem frater aut soror nudi sunt et indigent victu cotidiano
216And one of you say to them: Go in peace, be ye warmed and filled; yet give them not those things that are necessary for the body, what shall it profit?dicat autem aliquis de vobis illis ite in pace calefacimini et saturamini non dederitis autem eis quae necessaria sunt corporis quid proderit
217So faith also, if it have not works, is dead in itself.sic et fides si non habeat opera mortua est in semet ipsam
218But some man will say: Thou hast faith, and I have works. Shew me thy faith without works; and I will shew thee, by works, my faith.sed dicet quis tu fidem habes et ego opera habeo ostende mihi fidem tuam sine operibus et ego ostendam tibi ex operibus fidem meam
219Thou believest that there is one God. Thou dost well: the devils also believe and tremble.tu credis quoniam unus est Deus bene facis et daemones credunt et contremescunt
220But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?vis autem scire o homo inanis quoniam fides sine operibus otiosa est
221Was not Abraham our father justified by works, offering up Isaac his son upon the altar?Abraham pater noster nonne ex operibus iustificatus est offerens Isaac filium suum super altare
222Seest thou that faith did cooperate with his works and by works faith was made perfect?vides quoniam fides cooperabatur operibus illius et ex operibus fides consummata est
223And the scripture was fulfilled, saying: Abraham believed God, and it was reputed to him to justice, and he was called the friend of God.et suppleta est scriptura dicens credidit Abraham Deo et reputatum est illi ad iustitiam et amicus Dei appellatus est
224Do you see that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only?videtis quoniam ex operibus iustificatur homo et non ex fide tantum
225And in like manner also Rahab the harlot, was not she justified by works, receiving the messengers and sending them out another way?similiter autem et Raab meretrix nonne ex operibus iustificata est suscipiens nuntios et alia via eiciens
226For even as the body without the spirit is dead: so also faith without works is dead.sicut enim corpus sine spiritu emortuum est ita et fides sine operibus mortua est
