James 5


5:1 Come now, [ye] rich men, weep and howl for your miseries
 that shall come upon [you].
5:2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten.
5:3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall
 be a testimony against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were
 fire. Ye have amassed treasure for the last days.
5:4 Behold, the hire of the laborers who have reaped your
 fields, which is by you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the
 cries of them who have reaped have entered into the ears of the
 Lord of Sabaoth.
5:5 Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye
 have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
5:6 Ye have condemned [and] killed the just; [and] he doth not
 resist you.
5:7 Be patient, therefore, brethren, to the coming of the Lord.
 Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the
 earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receiveth the
 early and the latter rain.
5:8 Be ye also patient; establish your hearts; for the coming of
 the Lord draweth nigh.
5:9 Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be
 condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.
5:10 Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the
 name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and
 of patience.
5:11 Behold, we count them happy who endure. Ye have heard of
 the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that
 the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.
5:12 But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by
 heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but
 let your yea, be yea: and [your] nay, nay; lest ye fall into
 condemnation.
5:13 Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any cheerful?
 let him sing psalms.
5:14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the
 church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in
 the name of the Lord:
5:15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord
 will raise him up; and if he hath committed sins, they will be
 forgiven him.
5:16 Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for
 another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of
 the righteous man availeth much.
5:17 Elijah was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he
 prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on
 the earth by the space of three years and six months.
5:18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the
 earth brought forth its fruit.
5:19 Brethren, if any one of you should err from the truth, and
 one should convert him;
5:20 Let him know, that he who converteth a sinner from the
 error of his way will save a soul from death, and will hide a
 multitude of sins.
