- Goe to now, yee rich men, weepe and howle for your miseries that shall come vpon you.
- Your riches are corrupted, and your garments motheaten:
- Your gold and siluer is cankered, and the rust of them shall bee a witnesse against you, and shall eate your flesh as it were fire: ye haue heaped treasure together for the last dayes.
- Beholde, the hire of the labourers which haue reaped downe your fieldes, which is of you kept backe by fraud, cryeth: and the cryes of them which haue reaped, are entred into the eares of the Lord of Sabaoth.
- Yee haue liued in pleasure on the earth, and bene wanton: ye haue nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter:
- Yee haue condemned, and killed the iust, and he doth not resist you.
- Be patient therefore, brethren, vnto the comming of the Lord: behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, vntill hee receiue the early and latter raine.
- Be yee also patient;
stablish your hearts: for the comming of the Lorde draweth nigh.
- Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the Iudge standeth before the doore.
- Take, my brethren, the Prophets, who haue spoken in the Name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.
- Beholde, wee count them happie which endure.
Ye haue heard of the patience of Iob, and haue seene the end of the Lord: that the Lord is very pitifull and of tender mercie.
- But aboue all things, my brethren, sweare not, neither by heauen, neither by the earth, neither by any other othe: but let your yea, be yea, and your nay, nay: lest yee fall into condemnation.
- Is any among you afflicted?
let him pray.
Is any merry?
let him sing Psalmes.
- Is any sicke among you?
let him call for the Elders of the Church, and let them pray ouer him, anointing him with oyle in the Name of the Lord:
- And the prayer of Faith shall saue the sicke, and the Lord shall raise him vp: and if hee haue committed sinnes, they shall be forgiuen him.
- Confesse your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that yee may bee healed: the effectuall feruent prayer of a righteous man auaileth much.
- Elias was a man subiect to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not raine: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three yeeres and sixe monethes.
- And hee prayed againe, and the heauen gaue raine, and the earth brought foorth her fruit.
- Brethren, if any of you doe erre from the trueth, and one conuert him,
- Let him know, that hee which conuerteth the sinner from the errour of his way, shall saue a soule from death, and shall hide a multitude of sinnes.
