Warning to the Rich1Come now a you rich, weep and howl for the b miseries that are coming upon you. 2 c Your riches have rotted and d your garments are moth-eaten. 3Your gold and silver have corroded, and their corrosion will be evidence against you and will eat your flesh like fire. e You have laid up treasure f in the last days. 4Behold g the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, are crying out against you, and h the cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of i the Lord of hosts. 5 j You have lived on the earth in luxury and k in self-indulgence. You have fattened your hearts in l a day of slaughter. 6You have condemned and m murdered n the righteous person. He does not resist you.
Patience in Suffering7Be patient, therefore, brothers, ▼
▼Or brothers and sisters; also verses 9, 10, 12, 19until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives p the early and the late rains. 8You also, be patient. q Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord r is at hand. 9Do not grumble against one another, brothers, s so that you may not be judged; behold, t the Judge is standing u at the door. 10As an example of suffering and patience, brothers, take v the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. 11Behold, we consider those blessed who remained steadfast. You have heard of w the steadfastness of Job, and you have seen x the purpose of the Lord, how y the Lord is compassionate and merciful. 12But above all, my brothers z do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath, but let your “yes” be yes and your “no” be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation.
The Prayer of Faith13Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him aa sing praise. 14Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, ab anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And ac if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16Therefore ad confess your sins to one another and pray for one another ae that you may be healed. af The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. ▼
▼Or The effective prayer of a righteous person has great power17Elijah was a man ah with a nature like ours, and ai he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for aj three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. 18 ak Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit. 19My brothers al if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone am brings him back, 20let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering an will save his soul from death and ao will cover a multitude of sins.
