14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters,* if you say you have faith but do not have works? Can faith save you? 15If a brother or sister is naked and lacks daily food, 16and one of you says to them, Go in peace; keep warm and eat your fill, and yet you do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good of that? 17So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead.
18 But someone will say, You have faith and I have works. Show me your faith without works, and I by my works will show you my faith.
19You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believeand shudder.
20Do you want to be shown, you senseless person, that faith without works is barren?
24You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone.
26For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is also dead.
