Misuse of Riches1 a Come now b you rich c weep and howl for your miseries which are coming upon you. 2 d Your riches have rotted and your garments have become moth-eaten. 3 Your gold and your silver have rusted; and their rust will be a witness against you and will consume your flesh like fire. It is e in the last days that you have stored up your treasure! 4 Behold f the pay of the laborers who mowed your fields, and which has been withheld by you, cries out against you; and g the outcry of those who did the harvesting has reached the ears of h the Lord of ▼
▼ I.e. HostsSabaoth. 5 You have j lived luxuriously on the earth and led a life of wanton pleasure; you have ▼
▼ Lit nourishedfattened your hearts in l a day of slaughter. 6 You have condemned and ▼
▼ Or murdered, n put to death o the righteous man; he does not resist you.
Exhortation7 Therefore be patient p brethren q until the coming of the Lord. r The farmer waits for the precious produce of the soil, being patient about it, until ▼
▼ Or heit gets t the early and late rains. 8 u You too be patient; v strengthen your hearts, for w the coming of the Lord is x near. 9 y Do not ▼
▼ Lit groancomplain aa brethren, against one another, so that you yourselves may not be judged; behold ab the Judge is standing ▼
▼ Lit before, ad right at the ▼
▼ Lit doorsdoor. 10 As an example af brethren, of suffering and patience, take ag the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. 11 We count those ah blessed who endured. You have heard of ai the ▼
▼ Or steadfastnessendurance of Job and have seen ak the ▼
▼ Lit end of the Lordoutcome of the Lord’s dealings, that am the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful. 12 But above all an my brethren ao do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath; but ▼
▼ Lit yours is to be yes, yes, and no, noyour yes is to be yes, and your no, no, so that you may not fall under judgment. 13 Is anyone among you aq suffering? ar Then he must pray. Is anyone cheerful? He is to as sing praises. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for at the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, ▼
▼ Lit having anointed, av anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; 15 and the aw prayer ▼
▼ Lit ofoffered in faith will ▼
▼ Or save, az restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will ba raise him up, and if he has committed sins, ▼
▼ Lit itthey will be forgiven him. 16 Therefore bc confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be bd healed. be The effective ▼
▼ Lit supplicationprayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. 17 Elijah was bg a man with a nature like ours, and bh he prayed ▼
▼ Lit with prayerearnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the earth for bj three years and six months. 18 Then he bk prayed again, and bl the ▼
▼ Lit heavensky ▼
▼ Lit gavepoured rain and the earth produced its fruit. 19 My brethren bo if any among you strays from bp the truth and one turns him back, 20 let him know that ▼
▼ Lit he who has turnedhe who turns a sinner from the error of his way will br save his soul from death and will bs cover a multitude of sins.
