James 1:22 - Do not merely listen to the Word...

NIV Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
KJV But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.


Believers who hear the Word of God (v. 19) must receive it with a teachable spirit (v. 21), applying it to their daily lives. To hear and not obey is to be deceived.
