you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to
hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; for the anger of man does
not achieve the righteousness of God. Therefore, putting aside
all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility
receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls.
But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers
who delude themselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and
not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a
mirror; for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has
immediately forgotten what kind of person he was.
