Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

James 2:24

_ _ justified and, not by faith only — that is, by “faith without (separated from: severed from) works,” its proper fruits (see on James 2:20). Faith to justify must, from the first, include obedience in germ (to be developed subsequently), though the former alone is the ground of justification. The scion must be grafted on the stock that it may live; it must bring forth fruit to prove that it does live.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on James 2:14-26.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

James 2:24

Ye see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only — St. Paul, on the other band, declares, "A man is justified by faith," and not by works, Romans 3:28. And yet there is no contradiction between the apostles: because, They do not speak of the same faith: St. Paul speaking of living faith; St. James here, of dead faith. They do not speak of the same works: St. Paul speaking of works antecedent to faith; St. James, of works subsequent to it.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

James 2:24

(12) Ye see then how that by works a man is (o) justified, and not by (p) faith only.

(12) The conclusion: Only he who has faith that has works following it is justified.

(o) Is proved to be just.

(p) Of that dead and fruitless faith which you boast of.
