James 2:15-17

Context
2:15 If a brother or sister 1  is poorly clothed and lacks daily food, 2:16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, keep warm and eat well,” but you do not give them what the body needs, 2  what good is it? 2:17 So also faith, if it does not have works, is dead being by itself.

1 tn It is important to note that the words ἀδελφός (adelfos) and ἀδελφή (adelfh) both occur in the Greek text at this point, confirming that the author intended to refer to both men and women. See the note on “someone” in 2:2.

2 tn Grk “what is necessary for the body.”
