- Go to now, ye rich, weep, howling over your miseries that [are] coming upon [you].
- Your wealth is become rotten, and your garments moth-eaten.
- Your gold and silver is eaten away, and their canker shall be for a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as fire.
Ye have heaped up treasure in [the] last days.
- Behold, the wages of your labourers, who have harvested your fields, wrongfully kept back by you, cry, and the cries of those that have reaped are entered into the ears of [the] Lord of sabaoth.
- Ye have lived luxuriously on the earth and indulged yourselves;
ye have nourished your hearts [as] in a day of slaughter;
- ye have condemned, ye have killed the just;
he does not resist you.
- Have patience, therefore, brethren, till the coming of the Lord.
Behold, the labourer awaits the precious fruit of the earth, having patience for it until it receive [the] early and [the] latter rain.
- *Ye* also have patience: stablish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is drawn nigh.
- Complain not one against another, brethren, that ye be not judged.
Behold, the judge stands before the door.
- Take [as] an example, brethren, of suffering and having patience, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of [the] Lord.
- Behold, we call them blessed who have endured.
Ye have heard of the endurance of Job, and seen the end of the Lord;
that the Lord is full of tender compassion and pitiful.
- But before all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, nor by the earth, nor by any other oath;
but let your yea be yea, and your nay, nay, that ye do not fall under judgment.
- Does any one among you suffer evil?
let him pray.
Is any happy?
let him sing psalms.
- Is any sick among you?
let him call to [him] the elders of the assembly, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of [the] Lord;
- and the prayer of faith shall heal the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up;
and if he be one who has committed sins, it shall be forgiven him.
- Confess therefore your offences to one another, and pray for one another, that ye may be healed.
[The] fervent supplication of the righteous [man] has much power.
- Elias was a man of like passions to us, and he prayed with prayer that it should not rain;
and it did not rain upon the earth three years and six months;
- and again he prayed, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth caused its fruit to spring forth.
- My brethren, if any one among you err from the truth, and one bring him back,
- let him know that he that brings back a sinner from [the] error of his way shall save a soul from death and shall cover a multitude of sins.
