James 2:18

Context
2:18 But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” 1  Show me your faith without works and I will show you faith by 2  my works.

James 2:22

Context
2:22 You see that his faith was working together with his works and his faith was perfected by works.

1 tn There is considerable doubt about where the words of the “someone” end and where James’ reply begins. Some see the quotation running to the end of v. 18; others to the end of v. 19. But most punctuate as shown above. The “someone” is then an objector, and the sense of his words is something like, “Some have faith; others have works; don’t expect everyone to have both.” James’ reply is that faith cannot exist or be seen without works.

2 tn Or “from.”
