James 2:8-12

2:8 But if you fulfill the royal law as expressed in this scripture, 1 You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” 2  you are doing well. 2:9 But if you show prejudice, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as violators. 3  2:10 For the one who obeys the whole law but fails 4  in one point has become guilty of all of it. 5  2:11 For he who said, “Do not commit adultery,” 6  also said, “Do not murder.” 7  Now if you do not commit adultery but do commit murder, you have become a violator of the law. 2:12 Speak and act as those who will be judged by a law that gives freedom. 8
