17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. 18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith ||without thy works, and I will nshew thee omy faith by my works. 19 pThou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: qthe devils also rbelieve, and tremble. 20 But wilt thou know, O svain man, that faith twithout works is dead? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, uwhen he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22 ||Seest thou vhow faith wrought with his works, and wby works was faith made perfect? 23 And xthe scripture was fulfilled which saith, yAbraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called zthe Friend of God. 24 Ye see then how that aby works a man is justified, and anot by faith only. 25 Likewise also bwas not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had creceived the messengers, and had sent them out another way? 26 For as the body dwithout the ||spirit is dead, so faith dwithout works is dead also.
