James 1:2-4 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
II. The Value of Trials and Temptation
Perseverance in Trial. 2 Consider it all joy, my brothers, when you encounter various trials, 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 And let perseverance be perfect, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
