[a]My brethren, [b]count it exceeding joy, [c]when ye fall into divers tentations,


  1. James 1:2 The first place or part touching comfort in afflictions, wherein we ought not be cast down and be fainthearted, but rather rejoice and be glad.
  2. James 1:2 Seeing their condition was miserable in that scattering abroad, he doth well to begin as he doth.
  3. James 1:2 The first argument, because our faith is tried through afflictions: which ought to be most pure, for so it is behoovable for us.
