Chapter 1

1:4  But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.


mature and complete. (See Scofield "Matthew 5:48") .

1:14  But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.


"Temptation" is used in two senses:

(1) Solicitation to evil (e.g. Genesis 3:1-6; Matthew 4:1; 1 Corinthians 10:13; 2 Corinthians 11:3,4; James 1:14).

(2) Testing under trial (eg) Genesis 22:1; Luke 22:28 Cf Luke 4:2, Cf Matthew 6:13 (solicitation to evil) and 1 Peter 1:6 (testing under trial).

1:15  Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

sin Sin.

(See Scofield "Romans 3:23") .

1:17  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.


Two words are used in the original for "gift," the first meaning the act of giving; the second, the thing given.

1:20  For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.


(See Scofield "Romans 3:21") .

1:21  Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.


(See Scofield "Romans 1:16") .

1:26  If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.


(Greek - threskos [qrhsko/v] = outwardly religious).

1:27  Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.


"kosmos" = world-system. James 4:4; John 7:7 (See Scofield "Revelation 13:8")
