work so that you may be mature
and complete, not lacking anything.
James chapter one verses two to four

he should ask God,
who gives generously to all,
without finding fault,
And it will be given to him. (3x)

he must believe and not doubt,
because he who doubts
is like a wave of the sea,
blown and tossed by the wind (3x)

That man should not think
he will receive anything
from the Lord;
he is a double-minded man,
unstable in all he does (3x)

Part 1:
The brother in humble circumstances,
ought to take pride in his high position.
But the one who is rich should take pride
in his low position,
because he will pass away like a wild flower.
James one verses nine and ten says this

Part 2:
For the sun rises with scorching heat
and withers, the plant;
its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed.
In the same way, the rich man will fade away
even while he goes about his business.
James one eleven says this
James 1:12-15

Part 1:
Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial,
because when he has stood, stood the test,
he will receive the crown of life that God has promised

When tempted, no one should
say, "God is tempting me."
For God cannot be, tempted by evil,
nor does he tempt anyone;
James chapter one verses twelve and thirteen.

But each one is tempted when,by his own,
evil desire he is, dragged away and enticed.
Then after desire, has conceived it gives birth to sin;
and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
James 1:16-18

Part 1:
Don't be deceived, my dear brothers.
Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,
who does not change like shifting shadows.
Don't be deceived, my dear brothers.

Part 2:
He chose to give us birth
through the word of truth,
that we might be a kind of first fruits of all he created.
James chapter one verses sixteen through eighteen.
James chapter one, sixteen through eighteen
James 1:19-20
My dear brothers, take note of this:
Everyone should be quick to listen,
slow to speak ‘n slow to become angry,
for man's anger does not bring about
the righteous life that God desires.

the righteous life that God desires (3x)
James 1:21-25

Part 1:
Therefore, get rid of all moral filth .
And the evil that is so prevalent.
And humbly accept the word planted in you,
which can save you.

Part 2:
Do not merely listen to the word,
and so deceive yourselves.
Do what it says James chapter one.
Verses one to twenty two

Part 3:
Anyone who listens to the word
but does not, do what it says
is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror.
James one verse twenty three

Part 4:
And after looking at himself.
In the mirror, goes away.
And immediately forgets what he looks like.
James one verse twenty four

But the man who looks intently
into the perfect law that gives
freedom, and continues to do this,
forgetting not what he has heard,
but doing it, he’ll be blessed in what he does.

Part 1:
If anyone considers himself religious
and yet does not keep a tight rein
on his tongue, he deceives himself
and his religion is worthless.

Part 2:
Religion that God our Father accepts
as pure and faultless is this:
to look after orphans and widows in their distress
and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
James 2:1-4

My brothers, as believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, don't show favoritism. (2x)

Part 1:
Suppose a man comes into your meeting
wearing a gold ring and fine clothes,
and a poor man in shabby clothes
also comes in.

Part 2:
If you show special attention
to the man wearing fine clothes
and say, "Here's a good seat for you,"
but say to the poor man,
"You stand there" or "Sit,
sit on the floor by my feet,"

Part 3:
Have you not discriminated
among yourselves and become judges
with evil thoughts?
James two verses one through four
James 2:5-7

Part 1:
Listen, my dear brothers: has not God chosen those
who are poor in the eyes of, the eyes of the world
to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom
he promised those who love him?
James two verse five

Part 2:
But you have insulted the poor.
Is it not the rich who are exploiting you?
Are they not the ones who are dragging you into court?
Are they not the ones who are slandering
the noble name of him to whom you belong?
James 2:8-11

Part 1:
If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture,
"Love your neighbor as yourself," you are doing right.
But if you show favoritism, you sin and are
convicted by the law as lawbreakers.

Part 2:
For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at
just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.
For he who said, "Do not commit adultery,”
also said, do not murder."

But do commit murder,
you have become a lawbreaker.
James two eight to eleven

by the law that gives freedom,
because judgment without mercy will be shown
to anyone who has not been merciful.
Mercy triumphs over, It triumphs over judgment!
James 2:14-18

What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds?
Can such faith save him? (2x)

Part 1:
Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food.
If one of you says to him, "Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,"
but does nothing about his physical needs,
what good is it?

Part 2:
In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied
by action, it is dead.
But someone will say, "You have faith; and I have deeds."
Show me your faith without deeds, and I’ll show you my
faith by what I do.

James Chapter two verses fourteen to eighteen says this. (3x)
James 2:19
You believe that there is one God. Good! (3x)
Even the demons believe that—and shudder.
James 2:20-23

Part 1:
You foolish man, do you want evidence
that faith without deeds is useless?
Was not our ancestor Abraham considered righteous for what he did
when he offered his son Isaac on the altar?

Part 2:
You see that his faith and his actions were working together,
and his faith was made, complete by what he did.
And the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God,
and it was credited to him as righteousness,"
and he was called, God's friend.
James 2:24-26

You see that a person is justified
by what he does and not by faith alone. (2x)

Part 1:
In the same way, was not even Rahab
the prostitute considered righteous for what she did
when she gave lodging to the spies
and sent them off in a different direction?

Part 2:
As the body without the spirit is dead,
so faith without deeds is dead.
James chapter two verses
twenty two to twenty four says this
James 3:1-2

Part 1:
Not many of you should presume to be teachers,
my brothers, because you know
that we who teach will be judged more strictly.

Part 2:
We all stumble in many ways.
If anyone is never at fault in what he says,
He’s a perfect man, able to keep his whole body in check.
James 3:3-5

Part 1:
When we put bits into the mouths of horses
to make them obey us,
we can turn the whole animal.
James chapter three verse three

Part 2:
Or take ships as an example.
Although they are so large and are
driven by strong winds, they are steered by a
very small rudder. Wherever the pilot wants to go.

Part 3:
Likewise the tongue is a small part
of the body, but it makes great boasts.
Consider what a great forest
is set on fire by a small spark.
James 3:6-8

Part 1:
The tongue also is a fire,
a world of evil,
among the parts of the body.
It corrupts the whole person,
sets the whole course
of his life on fire, and is itself set on
fire by hell, fire by hell, fire by hell

Part 2:
All kinds of animals,
birds, reptiles and creatures,
of the sea are being tamed
and have been tamed by man,
but no man can tame
the tongue. It is a restless evil,
full of deadly poison, deadly poison, deadly poison
James 3:9-12

Part 1:
With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father,
and with it we curse men,
who have been made in God's likeness.
James chapter three verse nine says this

Out of the same mouth come
praise and cursing.
My brothers, this should not be.
James chapter three verse ten says this

Part 2:
Can both fresh and salt water flow from
the same spring? My brothers,
can a fig tree bear olives,
or a grapevine bear figs?

Neither can a salt spring produce
fresh water.
James chapter three verses
eleven and twelve says this
James 3:13-18

Part 1:
Who is wise and understanding among you?
Let him show it by his good life,
by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.
But if you harbor bitter envy
And selfish ambition in your hearts,
do not boast about it or deny the truth.

Part 2:
Such "wisdom" does not come
down from heaven
but is earthly, unspiritual, of the devil.
For where you have envy
and selfish ambition,
there you find disorder
and every evil practice.

Part 3:
But the wisdom that comes from heaven
is first of all pure;
then peace-loving, considerate,
submissive, full of
mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.
Peacemakers who sow in peace
raise a harvest of righteousness.

James 4:1-6

Part 1:
What causes fights and quarrels among you?
Don't they come from your desires that battle within you?
You want something but don't get it.
You kill and covet,
but you cannot have what you want.
You quarrel and you fight.

Part 2:
You do not have because you, do not ask God.
When you ask, you do not receive,
because you ask
with wrong motives, that you may spend
what you get on your pleasures.
James Chapter four verses one to three

Part 3:
You adulterous people, don't you know that
friendship with the world is, hatred toward God?
Anyone who chooses
to be a friend
of the world becomes
an enemy of God.

Part 4:
Or do you think Scripture says
without reason
that the spirit he caused to live in us envies intensely?
But he gives us more grace.
That is why Scripture says:
God opposes the proud but gives grace
to the humble, James Four three to six.
James 4:7-10

Part 1 (chorus):
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (2x)
Come near to God and he will come near to you.

Part 2:
Wash your hands, you sinners,
and purify your hearts,
you double-minded.
Grieve, mourn and wail,
change your laughter to mourning
and your joy to gloom.

Part 3:
Humble yourselves
before the Lord,
and He will lift you up. (2x)
James 4:11-12
Part 1: (chorus)
Brothers, do not slander one another.
Anyone who speaks against
his brother or judges him speaks against the law.
Brothers, do not slander one another.
Anyone who speaks against
his brother or judges him
speaks against the whole law and judges it.

Part 2:
When you judge the law, you are not keeping it,
but sitting in judgment on it.
There is only one Lawgiver and only one Judge,
the one who is able to save and destroy
But you—who are you to judge your neighbor?
James 4:13-17

Part 1:
Now listen, you who say,
"Today or tomorrow
we will go
to this or that city,
spend a year there,
carry on business and make money."

Part 2: Chorus
Why, you do not even know
what will happen tomorrow.
What is your life? What is your life?
You are a mist that appears
for a little while
and then vanishes.

Part 3:
Instead, you ought to say,
"If it is the Lord's will,
we will live and do this or that."
As it is, you
boast and brag.
All such boasting is evil.

Part 4:
Anyone, then, who knows the
good he ought to do
and does not do it, sins.
James chapter four
verses thirteen to seventeen
Is where this verse is from
James 5:1-6

Part 1:
Now listen, you rich people,
weep and wail because of
the misery that is
coming upon you.
Your wealth has rotted, and moths have
eaten your clothes.
Your gold and silver are corroded.

Part 2:
Their corrosion will testify
against you and
eat your flesh like fire.
You have hoarded wealth in the last days.
Look! The wages you failed to pay
the workmen who mowed
your fields are crying out against you.

Part 3:
The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears
of the Lord Almighty.
You have lived on the earth in luxury
and self-indulgence.
You have fattened yourselves
in the day of slaughter.
You have condemned and murdered innocent men,
who were not opposing you.

Part 4:
James chapter five
verses one through six.(2x)
James five one to six
James chapter five
verses one to six says this

Ending (Slower):

James 5:7-8
Be patient, then, brothers,
until the Lord's coming.
See how the farmer waits
for the land to yield
its valuable crop
and how patient he is
for the autumn and spring rains.
You too, be patient and stand firm,
because the Lord's coming is near.
James 5:9
Don't grumble against each other, brothers, or you will be judged. (2x)
The Judge is standing at the door! (3x)
James five verse nine

Part 1:
Brothers, as an example of patience
in the face of suffering,
take the prophets who spoke in the name of,
who spoke in the name of the Lord. (2x)

Part 2:
As you know, we consider
blessed those who have persevered.
You have heard of Job's perseverance
and have seen what the Lord finally brought about.

Part 3:
The Lord is full of compassion
and mercy. James chapter five
verses ten and eleven
are where these verses are from
James 5:12

Part 1:
Above all, my brothers, do not swear (2x)
not by heaven or by earth
or by anything else.

Part 2:
Let your "Yes" be yes,
and your "No," be no,
or you will be condemned.
James chapter five verse twelve
James 5:13-18

Part 1:
Is any one of you in trouble?
He should pray.
Is anyone happy?
Let him sing songs of praise.
Is any one of you sick?
He should call,
the elders of the church to pray over him
and anoint him with oil
in the name of the Lord.
And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well;
the Lord will raise him up. James chapter five
thirteen to fifteen A

Part 2:
If he has sinned, he’ll be forgiven.
Therefore confess your sins
to each other and pray for each other
so that you may be healed.
The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
Elijah was a man just like us.
He prayed earnestly that it would not rain,
and it did not rain on the land
for three and a half years.
Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain,
And the earth produced its crops.
James chapter five sixteen to eighteen
James 5:19-20
My brothers, if one of you should wander from the truth
and someone should bring him back, remember this:
Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way
will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins.
James chapter five verses,
nineteen to twenty says this
