9 But if ye regard the persons, ye commit sin, and are rebuked of the Law, as transgressors.
10 [a]For whosoever shall keep the whole Law, and yet faileth in one point, he is guilty of [b]all.
11 [c]For he that said, Thou shalt not commit adultery, said also, Thou shalt not kill. Now though thou doest none adultery, yet if thou killest, thou art a transgressor of the Law.
James 2:10A new argument to prove the same conclusion: They do not love their neighbors, which neglect some, and ambitiously honor others: for he doth not obey God, which cutteth off from the commandments of God that that is not so commodious for him, nay he is rather guilty generally for the breach of the whole Law, although he observe the residue.
James 2:10Not that all sins are equal, but because he that breaketh one tittle of the Law, offendeth the majesty of the Lawgiver.
James 2:11A proof: because the Lawmaker is always one and the selfsame, and the body of the Law cannot be divided.
