Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.
My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.
Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.
