New International Version
13 because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful.(A) Mercy triumphs over judgment.
Faith and Deeds
14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds?(B) Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food.(C) 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?(D) 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.(E)
18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.”
Show me your faith without deeds,(F) and I will show you my faith(G) by my deeds.(H) 19 You believe that there is one God.(I) Good! Even the demons believe that(J)—and shudder.
20 You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless[a]?(K)
