    James 2:5 Listen, my beloved brothers, Has not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he has promised to them that love him?

    James 2:16 And one of you say to them, Depart in peace, be you warmed and filled; notwithstanding you give them not those things which are needful to the body; what does it profit?
    James 2:17 Even so faith, if it has not works, is dead, being alone.
    James 2:18 Yes, a man may say, You have faith, and I have works: show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.
    James 2:19 You believe that there is one God; you do well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
