James,a a servant of Godb and of the Lord Jesus Christ,

To the twelve tribesc scatteredd among the nations:

Greetings.e

Trials and Temptations

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,a whenever you face trials of many kinds,f because you know that the testing of your faithg produces perseverance.h Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be maturei and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God,j who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.k But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt,l because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-mindedm and unstablen in all they do.
