NT
James 1:19-27
g Know this, my beloved brothers:
let every person h be quick to hear,
i slow to speak,
j slow to anger;
series

Therefore k put away all filthiness
and rampant wickedness
and receive with l meekness the implanted word,
m which is able to save your souls.

For he looks at himself
and goes away
and at once forgets what he was like.

and perseveres,
being no hearer who forgets
but a doer who acts,

If anyone thinks he is religious
q and does not bridle his tongue
but deceives his heart,

and u to keep oneself v unstained from the world.
