James 2:24

You see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.

AD 735
The works mentioned here are works of faith. No one can have perfect works unless he has faith, but many have perfect faith without works, since they do not always have time to do them.

Cyril of Jerusalem

AD 386
The person who in faith honors the God and ruler of all has righteousness as his reward.

Theophylact of Ochrid

AD 1107
The works of which James speaks are not those of the law but those of righteousness and the other virtues.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
