If the ASL versions of James are a new translation from Greek and Hebrew
directly into ASL, it would be surprising if they did follow verse by verse
an English translation which is at its best a paraphrase from the original

Example of Hebrew into English.

B'reishit b'ara Elohim hashamayim minhaaretz.

As to origin created Elohim the heavens and the soil.

As emanation from the Divine Self were the heavens and the earth brought

At start, God made heaven, God made Earth. [ASL Gloss]

Happen start Gods [the word is plural] made Heavens and Gods made Earth.
