James 1:19-21 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

19 Know ye, my brethren most loved, be each man swift to hear, but slow to speak, and slow to wrath;

20 for the wrath of man worketh not the rightwiseness of God.

21 For which thing cast ye away all uncleanness, and plenty of malice, and in mildness receive ye the word that is planted[a], that may save your souls.

James 1:19-21 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

19 Therefore, dear brethren, let everyone be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger. 20 For the wrath of man does not work that which is righteous before God. 21 Therefore lay apart all uncleanness, and all lingering evil and vice, and receive with meekness the word that is grafted in you, which is able to save your souls.
