James 2Maori Bible (MAORI)

E oku teina, kaua e waiho i runga i te whakapai kanohi te whakapono ki to tatou Ariki kororia, ki a Ihu Karaiti.

Ki te tomo mai hoki tetahi tangata ki to koutou whare karakia he mowhiti koura nei tona, he kakahu pai; a ka tomo mai ano he rawakore, he kakahu paru nei tona;

A ka titiro atu koutou ki te tangata i te kakahu pai, ka mea ki a ia, E noho koe ki konei, ki te wahi pai; a ka mea ki te rawakore, E tu koe ki kona, E noho ranei ki konei, ki raro i toku turanga waewae:

He teka ianei he tikanga tahatahi ta koutou, kua he hoki nga whakaaro o koutou, o nga kaiwhakawa?

Whakarongo, e oku teina aroha, Kahore ano koia te Atua i whiriwhiri i nga rawakore o tenei ao, kia whiwhi ki te taonga, ara ki te whakapono, kia riro hoki i a ratou te rangatiratanga kua whakaaria mai e ia mo te hunga e aroha ana ki a ia?

Heoi ka whakakino na koutou ki te rawakore. He teka ianei ko nga tangata taonga hei whakatupu rangatira ki a koutou, hei toto i a koutou ki nga whakawakanga?

He teka ianei he hunga kohukohu ratou i te ingoa pai kua whakahuatia na ki a koutou?

Engari ki te rite i a koutou te ture kingi, to te karaipiture, Me aroha e koe tou hoa, ano ko koe, ka pai ta koutou hanga:

Tena ki te whakapai kanohi koutou, e mahi ana koutou i te hara, ka mau hoki i te ture he hunga he.

10 Ki te mau hoki te ture katoa i tetahi tangata, a ka kotahi ano te mea e tapepa ai ia, kua he ia ki te katoa.

11 I tana kiinga mai hoki, Kaua e puremu, i ki mai ano ia, Kaua e patu tangata. Na, ahakoa kahore koe e puremu, ki te patu tangata koe, kua takahia e koe te ture.

12 Kia rite ta koutou korero, ta koutou mahi, ki ta te hunga e whakawakia a mua i runga i nga tikanga o te ture herekore.

13 Ko te tangata hoki kahore ona ngakau tohu, e kore e tohungia ina whakawakia; ka whakapehapeha ia te ngakau tohu ki te whakawa.

14 He aha te pai, e oku teina, ki te mea tetahi he whakapono tona, a kahore ana mahi? E taea ranei ia te whakaora e taua whakapono?

15 Ki te mea e noho tahanga ana tetahi teina, tuahine ranei, ki te mea ranei kua kore he kai mana mo tenei ra, mo tenei ra,

16 A ka mea atu tetahi o koutou ki a ratou, Haere marie, kia mahana, kia makona; a kahore e hoatu e koutou ki a ratou nga mea e matea ana e te tinana; he aha te pai?

17 Waihoki ko te whakapono, ki te kahore ana mahi, he mea mate i roto ano i a ia.

18 Na, he ki tenei ma tetahi, He whakapono tou, he mahi aku: whakakitea mai ki ahau tou whakapono motu ke i au mahi, a maku, ara ma aku mahi, e whakakite atu toku whakapono ki a koe.

19 E whakapono ana koe kotahi tonu te Atua; he pai tau meatanga: e whakapono ana hoki nga rewera, me te wiri ano.

20 Heoi e pai ana ranei koe kia matau, e te kuware, he mea huakore te whakapono ki te kahore he mahi?

21 Kihai ianei a Aperahama, to tatou matua, i tika i nga mahi, i a ia i whakaeke atu ai i tana tama, i a Ihaka, ki runga ki te aata?

22 Ka kite ranei koe i mahi tahi te whakapono me ana mahi, na nga mahi hoki i tino rite ai te whakapono?

23 A i rite ano ta te karaipiture e mea nei, I whakapono a Aperahama ki tenei, I whakapono a Aperahama ki te Atua, a ka whakairia ki a ia hei tika: ka huaina ano hoki ia ko te hoa o te Atua.

24 Heoi ka kite koutou kei nga mahi he tika mo te tangata, ehara i te mea kei te whakapono anake.

25 Waihoki ko Rahapa, te wahine kairau, kihai ianei ia i whakatikaia e nga mahi, i a ia i whakamanuhiri ai i nga karere, a tukua atu ana raua e ia ra tetahi ara ke?

26 Ka rite hoki ki te tinana ka mate nei ki te kahore te manawa ora, waihoki ko te whakapono, ki te kahore he mahi, he mea mate.
