22 But be doers of the message and not hearers only,g deceiving yourselves, 23 because if anyone is a hearer of the message and not a doer, this one is like someoneh staring at ⌊his own face⌋i in a mirror, 24 for he looks at himself and goes away and immediately forgets what sort of person he was. 25 But the one who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues to do it, not being a forgetful hearer but a doer who acts, this one will be blessed ⌊in what he does⌋j.
Some manuscripts have “not only hearers”
Literally “a man,” but clearly in a generic sense here meaning “someone, a person”
Literally “the face of his existence”
Literally “in his doing”
