Don't hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ of glory with partiality, favoring the rich above the poor. What good is it, my brothers, if a man says he has faith, but has no works? Faith, if it has no works, is dead.
The tongue is little, but boasts great things. A small fire can spread to a large forest! The tongue is a fire. The tongue defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature, and is set on fire by Gehenna.
Be patient, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. Don't grumble against one another, so that you won't be judged. Don't swear, by heaven or by the earth, or by any other oath; but let your "yes” be "yes,” and your "no,” "no.”
