1 My brothers, as believers in our glorious
Lord Jesus Christ, don’t show favoritism.
2 Suppose a man comes into your meeting
wearing a gold ring and fine clothes,
and a poor man in shabby clothes also comes in.
3 If you show special attention to the man
wearing fine clothes and say, “Here’s a good seat for you,
” but say to the poor man, “You stand there” or
“Sit on the floor by my feet,”
4 have you not discriminated among yourselves
and become judges with evil thoughts?
