James 2:5 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Listen, my beloved brothers. Did not God choose those who are poor[a] in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom that he promised to those who love him?

Footnotes:

  1. 2:5 The poor, “God’s poor” of the Old Testament, were seen by Jesus as particularly open to God for belief in and reliance on him alone (Lk 6:20). God’s law cannot tolerate their oppression in any way (Jas 2:9).
