2 My brothers, do not hold your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with partiality. 2 For if someonea enters into your assemblyb in fine clothing with a gold ring on his finger, and a poor person in filthy clothing also enters, 3 and you look favorably on the one wearing the fine clothing and you say, “Be seated here in a good place,” and to the poor person you say, “You stand or be seated therec by my footstool,” 4 have you not made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?
Literally “a man,” but clearly in a generic sense here meaning “someone, a person”
Literally “synagogue,” but here probably referring to a Christian assembly
Some manuscripts have “you stand there or be seated”
