The heart of the passage is the command. 'Do not be deceived.' I beleive the deception James has in mind here is the lie that God is tempting me to sin in my trial. James makes 4 points to keep us from being deceived. 1) Do not be deceived into thinking God is tempting you because God does not tempt anyone (v. 13) 2) Do not be deceived into thinking God is tempting you because temptation comes from your sinful desires (v. 14-15) 3) Do not be deceived into thinking God is tempting you because God only gives good gifts (v. 17) 4) Do not be deceived into thinking God is tempting you because God willingly saved you for Himself (v. 18)

μηδεὶς πειραζόμενος λεγέτω ὅτι ἀπὸ θεοῦ πειράζομαι·
Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am being tempted by God,"
ὁ γὰρ θεὸς ἀπείραστός ἐστιν κακῶν,
for God cannot be tempted with evil,
πειράζει δὲ αὐτὸς οὐδένα.
and he himself tempts no one.

ἕκαστος δὲ πειράζεται ὑπὸ τῆς ἰδίας ἐπιθυμίας ἐξελκόμενος καὶ δελεαζόμενος·
But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire.
εἶτα ἡ ἐπιθυμία συλλαβοῦσα τίκτει ἁμαρτίαν,
Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin,
ἡ δὲ ἁμαρτία ἀποτελεσθεῖσα ἀποκύει θάνατον.
and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.

Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth,
