James 2:22 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)
22 You see that faith was working together with his works, and by the works the faith was perfected

Verse 22 states two facts about Abraham’s faith. First, his faith and his actions were working together. Abraham’s faith prompted his obedience. It prodded him on to do good works. Second, his faith was made complete by what he did. His obedience demonstrated the integrity of his faith. This is not to say that previously Abraham had a weak faith. His willingness to sacrifice Isaac vividly demonstrated the existence of true faith. – Thomas D. Lea.
