A Warning Against Favoritism

1My brothers, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons. 2For if there come to your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment; 3And you have respect to him that wears the gay clothing, and say to him, Sit you here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand you there, or sit here under my footstool: 4Are you not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts? 5Listen, my beloved brothers, Has not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he has promised to them that love him? 6But you have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats? 7Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which you are called? 8If you fulfill the royal law according to the scripture, You shall love your neighbor as yourself, you do well: 9But if you have respect to persons, you commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. 10For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. 11For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if you commit no adultery, yet if you kill, you are become a transgressor of the law. 12So speak you, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty. 13For he shall have judgment without mercy, that has showed no mercy; and mercy rejoices against judgment.
