The word 'liberally' (James 1:5) is used only once in the Book of Mormon.
The word 'sensual' (James 3:15) is used only twice in the Book of Mormon, both times with the word 'devilish'.
The word 'amiss' (James 4:3) is used only once in the Book of Mormon. The word 'consume' appears four times, twice in quotations from Isaiah (II Nephi 17:20, II Nephi 20:18), once in a quotation from Malachi (II Nephi 26:6), and once in a quotation from James 4:3. Note that II Nephi 4:35 contains two separate references to the epistle of James.
