James 2:5-6

Context
2:5 Listen, my dear brothers and sisters! 1  Did not God choose the poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom that he promised to those who love him? 2:6 But you have dishonored the poor! 2  Are not the rich oppressing you and dragging you into the courts?

1 tn Grk “brothers.” See note on the phrase “brothers and sisters” in 1:2.

2 tn This is singular: “the poor person,” perhaps referring to the hypothetical one described in vv. 2-3.
