Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
King James Bible
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
American Standard Version
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deluding your own selves.
Young's Literal Translation
and become ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves,
James 1:22 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
But be ye doers of the word - They had heard this doctrine; they had believed it; but they had put it to no practical use. They were downright Antinomians, who put a sort of stupid, inactive faith in the place of all moral righteousness. This is sufficiently evident from the second chapter.
Deceiving your own selves - Παραλογιζομενοι ἑαυτους· Imposing on your own selves by sophistical arguments; this is the meaning of the words. They had reasoned themselves into a state of carnal security, and the object of St. James is, to awake them out of their sleep.
