James 1:22-25

Context
1:22 But be sure you live out the message and do not merely listen to it and so deceive yourselves. 1:23 For if someone merely listens to the message and does not live it out, he is like someone 1  who gazes at his own face 2  in a mirror. 1:24 For he gazes at himself and then goes out and immediately forgets 3  what sort of person he was. 1:25 But the one who peers into the perfect law of liberty and fixes his attention there, 4  and does not become a forgetful listener but one who lives it out – he 5  will be blessed in what he does. 6 

1 tn The word for “man” or “individual” is ἀνήρ (anhr), which often means “male” or “man (as opposed to woman).” However, as BDAG 79 s.v. 2 says, here it is “equivalent to τὶς someone, a person.”

2 tn Grk “the face of his beginning [or origin].”

3 tn Grk “and he has gone out and immediately has forgotten.”

4 tn Grk “continues.”

5 tn Grk “this one.”

6 tn Grk “in his doing.”
