   James  Chapter 2  KJV  (King James Version)


               

2  For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;
 
3  And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay 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  Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?
 
5  Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor 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 oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?
 
7  Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?
 
8  If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
 
9  But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
