Rom.2:13 13οὐ γὰρ οἱ ἀκροαταὶ νόμου δίκαιοι παρὰ τῷ θεῷ· ἀλλ᾽ οἱ ποιηταὶ νόμου δικαιωθήσονται. 13 For merely listening to the law doesn’t make us right with {NEQ} God . It is obeying the law that makes us right in his sight .
Jas.1:22 22γίνεσθε δὲ ποιηταὶ λόγου· καὶ μὴ ἀκροαταὶ μόνον· παραλογιζόμενοι ἑαυτούς. 22 But don’t just listen to God’s word . You must do what it says . Otherwise , you are only fooling yourselves .
Jas.1:23 23ὅτι εἴ τις ἀκροατὴς λόγου ἐστὶν καὶ οὐ ποιητής, οὗτος ἔοικεν ἀνδρὶ κατανοοῦντι τὸ πρόσωπον τῆς γενέσεως αὐτοῦ ἐν ἐσόπτρῳ· 23 For if you listen to the word {NEQ} and don’t obey , {RPT} it is like {RPT} glancing at your {NEQ} face in a mirror .
Jas.1:25 25 δὲ παρακύψας εἰς νόμον τέλειον τὸν τῆς ἐλευθερίας, καὶ παραμείνας οὐκ ἀκροατὴς ἐπιλησμονῆς γενόμενος ἀλλὰ ποιητὴς ἔργου, οὗτος μακάριος ἐν τῇ ποιήσει αὐτοῦ ἔσται. 25 But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you {NEQ} free , and {NEQ} if you {NEQ} do what it says and don’t forget what you heard , then God will bless you for doing it {RPT} .
