Surat James

James 1

1:1 James, servant of God and of our Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes of the dispersion, salam.
1:2 Saudara-saudaraku, when you have fallen into various trials, consider everything a joy,
1:3 knowing that the proving of your faith exercises patience,
1:4 and patience brings a work to perfection, so that you may be perfect and whole, deficient in nothing.
1:5 But if anyone among you is in need of wisdom, let him petition God, who gives abundantly to all without reproach, and it shall be given to him.
1:6 But he should ask with faith, doubting nothing. For he who doubts is like a wave on the ocean, which is moved about by the wind and carried away;
1:7 then a man should not consider that he would receive anything from the Lord.
1:8 For a man who is of two minds is inconstant in all his ways.
1:9 Now a humble brother should glory in his exaltation,
1:10 and a rich one, in his humiliation, for he will pass away like the flower of the grass.
1:11 For the sun has risen with a scorching heat, and has dried the grass, and its flower has fallen off, and the appearance of its beauty has perished. So also will the rich one wither away, according to his paths.
1:12 Blessed is the man who suffers temptation. For when he has been proven, he shall receive the crown of life which God has promised to those who love him.
1:13 No one should say, when he is tempted, that he was tempted by God. For God does not entice toward evils, and he himself tempts no one.
1:14 Namun benar-benar, each one is tempted by his own desires, having been enticed and drawn away.
1:15 Selepas itu, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin. Yet truly sin, when it has been consummated, produces death.
1:16 Dan juga, do not choose to go astray, my most beloved brothers.
1:17 Every excellent gift and every perfect gift is from above, descending from the Father of lights, with whom there is no change, nor any shadow of alteration.
1:18 For by his own will he produced us through the Word of truth, so that we might be a kind of beginning among his creatures.
1:19 You know this, my most beloved brothers. So let every man be quick to listen, but slow to speak and slow to anger.
1:20 For the anger of man does not accomplish the justice of God.
1:21 Disebabkan ini, having cast away all uncleanness and an abundance of malice, receive with meekness the newly-grafted Word, which is able to save your souls.
1:22 So be doers of the Word, and not listeners only, deceiving yourselves.
1:23 For if anyone is a listener of the Word, but not also a doer, he is comparable to a man gazing into a mirror upon the face that he was born with;
1:24 and after considering himself, he went away and promptly forgot what he had seen.
1:25 But he who gazes upon the perfect law of liberty, and who remains in it, is not a forgetful hearer, but instead a doer of the work. He shall be blessed in what he does.
1:26 But if anyone considers himself to be religious, but he does not restrain his tongue, but instead seduces his own heart: such a one’s religion is vanity.
1:27 This is religion, clean and undefiled before God the Father: to visit orphans and widows in their tribulations, and to keep yourself immaculate, apart from this age.

James 2

2:1 Saudara-saudaraku, within the glorious faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, do not choose to show favoritism toward persons.
2:2 For if a man has entered your assembly having a gold ring and splendid apparel, and if a poor man has also entered, in dirty clothing,
2:3 and if you are then attentive to the one who is clothed in excellent apparel, so that you say to him, “You may sit in this good place,” but you say to the poor man, “You stand over there,"atau, “Sit below my footstool,"
2:4 are you not judging within yourselves, and have you not become judges with unjust thoughts?
2:5 My most beloved brothers, mendengar. Has not God chosen the poor in this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom that God has promised to those who love him?
2:6 But you have dishonored the poor. Are not the rich the ones who oppress you through power? And are not they the ones who drag you to judgment?
2:7 Are not they the ones who blaspheme the good name which has been invoked over you?
2:8 So if you perfect the regal law, mengikut Kitab Suci, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” then you do well.
2:9 But if you show favoritism to persons, then you commit a sin, having been convicted again by the law as transgressors.
2:10 Now whoever has observed the whole law, yet who offends in one matter, has become guilty of all.
2:11 For he who said, “You shall not commit adultery,” also said, “You shall not kill.” So if you do not commit adultery, but you kill, you have become a transgressor of the law.
2:12 So speak and act just as you are beginning to be judged, by the law of liberty.
2:13 For judgment is without mercy toward him who has not shown mercy. But mercy exalts itself above judgment.
2:14 Saudara-saudaraku, Apa gunanya sana jika seorang mengatakan, bahwa ia mempunyai iman, tetapi dia tidak mempunyai perbuatan? Bagaimana iman akan dapat menyelamatkan dia?
2:15 Jadi, jika seorang saudara atau saudari tidak mempunyai pakaian dan harian lapar,
2:16 dan sesiapa di antara kamu berkata kepada mereka:: "Selamat jalan, menyimpan panas dan bermaya,"Tetapi tidak memberikan kepadanya apa yang perlu bagi tubuh, apa gunanya ini?
2:17 Oleh itu, walaupun iman, jika ia tidak mempunyai perbuatan, Telah mati, dalam dan dengan sendirinya.
2:18 Ada seorang yang berkata: "Padamu ada iman, dan saya mempunyai kerja-kerja. "Tunjukkanlah kepadaku imanmu itu tanpa perbuatan! Tetapi saya akan menunjukkan dengan iman saya melalui kerja-kerja.
2:19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. But the demons also believe, and they tremble greatly.
2:20 Sebab itu, are you willing to understand, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?
2:21 Was not our father Abraham justified by means of works, by offering his son Isaac upon the altar?
2:22 Do you see that faith was cooperating with his works, and that by means of works faith was brought to fulfillment?
2:23 And so the Scripture was fulfilled which says: “Abraham believed God, and it was reputed to him unto justice.” And so he was called the friend of God.
2:24 Do you see that a man is justified by means of works, and not by faith alone?
2:25 Begitu juga, Rahab, the harlot, was she not justified by works, by receiving the messengers and sending them out through another way?
2:26 For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.

James 3

3:1 Saudara-saudaraku, not many of you should choose to become teachers, knowing that you shall receive a stricter judgment.
3:2 For we all offend in many ways. If anyone does not offend in word, he is a perfect man. And he is then able, as if with a bridle, to lead the whole body around.
3:3 For so we put bridles into the mouths of horses, in order to submit them to our will, and so we turn their whole body around.
3:4 Consider also the ships, yang, though they are great and may be driven by strong winds, yet they are turned around with a small rudder, to be directed to wherever the strength of the pilot might will.
3:5 So also the tongue certainly is a small part, but it moves great things. Consider that a small fire can set ablaze a great forest.
3:6 And so the tongue is like a fire, comprising all iniquity. The tongue, stationed in the midst of our body, can defile the entire body and inflame the wheel of our nativity, setting a fire from Hell.
3:7 For the nature of all beasts and birds and serpents and others is ruled over, and has been ruled over, by human nature.
3:8 But no man is able to rule over the tongue, a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
3:9 By it we bless God the Father, and by it we speak evil of men, who have been made in the likeness of God.
3:10 From the same mouth proceeds blessing and cursing. Saudara-saudaraku, these things ought not to be so!
3:11 Does a fountain emit, out of the same opening, both sweet and bitter water?
3:12 Saudara-saudaraku, can the fig tree yield grapes? Or the vine, figs? Then neither is salt water able to produce fresh water.
3:13 Who is wise and well-taught among you? Let him show, by means of good conversation, his work in the meekness of wisdom.
3:14 But if you hold a bitter zeal, and if there is contention in your hearts, then do not boast and do not be liars against the truth.
3:15 For this is not wisdom, descending from above, but rather it is earthly, beastly, and diabolical.
3:16 Kerana di mana sahaja iri hati dan perdebatan adalah, di sana juga adalah tdk dan setiap pekerjaan yang berakhlak buruk.
3:17 Tetapi dalam kebijaksanaan yang berasal dari atas, pasti, kesucian adalah pertama, dan kedamaian yang akan datang, lemah lembut, keterbukaan, bersetuju dengan apa yang baik, yang plenitude belas kasihan dan buah-buahan yang baik, tidak menghakimi, tanpa kepalsuan.
3:18 Dan sebagainya buah keadilan ditaburkan dalam damai untuk mereka yang mengadakan damai.

James 4

4:1 Di mana peperangan dan perselisihan antara kamu? Adakah ia bukan dari ini: dari keinginan anda sendiri, mana pertempuran dalam ahli anda?
4:2 Anda inginkan, dan anda tidak perlu. Anda iri hati dan anda membunuh, dan anda tidak dapat untuk mendapatkan. Anda berhujah dan anda melawan, dan anda tidak perlu, kerana anda tidak meminta.
4:3 Anda bertanya dan anda tidak menerima, kerana anda meminta teruk, supaya anda boleh menggunakannya ke arah keinginan anda sendiri.
4:4 anda penzina! Adakah anda tidak tahu bahawa berkawan dengan dunia ini bermusuh dengan Tuhan? Oleh itu, sesiapa yang telah memilih untuk menjadi sahabat dunia ini telah dijadikan musuh Allah.
4:5 Atau adakah anda berfikir bahawa Kitab Suci mengatakan sia-sia: "Semangat yang diam di dalam kamu yang mahu kepada iri hati?"
4:6 Tetapi memberi rahmat yang lebih besar. Oleh itu dia berkata: "Allah menentang orang yang sombong, tetapi dia mengasihani orang yang rendah hati. "
4:7 Oleh itu, tertakluk kepada Allah. Tetapi menentang syaitan, maka Iblis akan lari dari anda.
4:8 Mendekatlah kepada Allah,, dan Ia akan mendekat kepadamu. Membersihkan tangan anda, anda orang berdosa! Dan Bersihkanlah hatimu, anda jiwa duplicitous!
4:9 hendaklah kalian sungguh: bersedih hati dan menangis. Biarlah tertawamu menjadi menjadi perkabungan, dan kesukaan anda ke dalam kesedihan.
4:10 Direndahkan di mata TUHAN, dan Ia akan meninggikan kamu.
4:11 Adik, do not choose to slander one another. Whoever slanders his brother, or whoever judges his brother, slanders the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law, but a judge.
4:12 There is one lawgiver and one judge. He is able to destroy, and he is able to set free.
4:13 Tetapi yang anda untuk menghakimi sesamamu? pertimbangkan ini, yang mengatakan, "Hari ini atau esok kita akan pergi ke bandar yang, dan sudah tentu kita akan menghabiskan setahun di sana, dan kami akan melakukan perniagaan, dan kami akan membuat keuntungan kami,"
4:14 menganggap bahawa anda tidak tahu apa yang akan menjadi esok.
4:15 Untuk apa yang hidup anda? Ia adalah kabus yang muncul untuk masa yang singkat, dan selepas itu akan lenyap. Jadi apa yang anda patut katakan adalah: "Seandainya Tuhan kehendaki,"atau, "Jika kita tinggal,"Kami akan melakukan ini atau itu.
4:16 Tetapi sekarang anda bergembira dalam congkakmu. Semua kegembiraan itu jahat.
4:17 Oleh itu, orang yang mengetahui bahawa dia patut lakukan satu perkara yang baik, dan tidak melakukannya, baginya ia adalah satu dosa.

James 5

5:1 Bertindak sekarang, yang kaya! Menangis dan meraung dalam kesengsaraan anda, yang tidak lama lagi akan datang kepada kamu!
5:2 Kekayaanmu telah rosak, dan pakaianmu telah dimakan oleh rama-rama.
5:3 Emas dan perakmu sudah berkarat, dan karatnya akan menjadi kesaksian terhadap kamu, dan ia akan memakan dagingmu seperti api. Anda telah disimpan murka atas dirimu sendiri kepada hari-hari terakhir.
5:4 Pertimbangkan gaji pekerja yang diraih ladangmu: ia telah disalahgunakan oleh anda; ia berseru. Dan seruan mereka telah masuk ke dalam telinga Tuhan semesta alam.
5:5 Anda telah bersukaria di muka bumi, dan anda telah memuaskan hatimu dengan kemewahan, kepada hari penyembelihan.
5:6 Anda dibawa dan membunuh Hanya Satu, dan dia tidak menentang anda.
5:7 Oleh itu, be patient, saudara, until the advent of the Lord. Consider that the farmer anticipates the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently, until he receives the early and the late rains.
5:8 Oleh itu, you too should be patient and should strengthen your hearts. For the advent of the Lord draws near.
5:9 Adik, tidak mengeluh terhadap satu sama lain, supaya anda jangan dihukum. Sesungguhnya, hakim berdiri di hadapan pintu.
5:10 Saudara-saudaraku, mempertimbangkan Nabi, yang telah berbicara demi nama Tuhan, sebagai contoh berlepas dari kejahatan, buruh, dan kesabaran.
5:11 Menganggap bahawa kita membahagiakan mereka yang telah bertekun. Anda telah mendengar penderitaan pesakit Ayub. Dan anda telah melihat akhir TUHAN, bahawa Tuhan itu pengasih dan penyayang.
5:12 Tetapi sebelum segala sesuatu, saudara-saudaraku, tidak memilih untuk bersumpah, baik demi langit, bukan dengan bumi, atau dalam apa-apa sumpah lain. Tetapi biarlah perkataan anda 'Ya' menjadi yes, dan perkataan anda 'Tidak' ada, supaya anda tidak boleh jatuh di bawah penghakiman.
5:13 Adakah mana-mana anda sedih? Hendaklah ia berdoa. Adakah dia yang tenang? Hendaklah ia menyanyi mazmur.
5:14 Kalau ada seorang di antara kamu sakit? Biarlah dia membawa masuk para imam Gereja, dan biarlah mereka berdoa baginya, mengolesnya dengan minyak dalam nama Tuhan.
5:15 Dan doa iman akan menyelamatkan lemah, dan TUHAN akan mengurangkan dia. Dan jika dia mempunyai dosa-dosa, ini akan diampuni.
5:16 Oleh itu, mengakui dosa-dosa anda kepada yang lain:, dan berdoa untuk satu sama lain, supaya kamu diselamatkan. Untuk solat tak henti-henti orang yang hanya wujud lebih banyak perkara.
5:17 Elia adalah seorang manusia seperti kami, dan dalam doa dia berdoa bahawa ia tidak akan hujan di bumi. Dan ia tidak hujan selama tiga tahun dan enam bulan.
5:18 Dan ia berdoa pula. Dan langit menurunkan hujan, dan bumi itu mengeluarkan buahnya.
5:19 Saudara-saudaraku, jika seseorang dari kamu telah sesat dari kebenaran, dan jika seseorang menukarkan dia,
5:20 dia patut tahu bahawa sesiapa yang menyebabkan orang berdosa hendak ditukar dari kesalahannya akan menyelamatkan nyawanya dari kematian dan akan meliputi banyak sekali dosa.
