Go tonow, ye rich men,weep and howlforyourmiseries that shall come upon you.
2Yourriches are corrupted , andyourgarmentsaremotheaten.3Yourgoldandsilver is cankered ; and the rust of them shall be a witnessagainstyou,and shall eatyourflesh as it werefire. Ye have heaped treasure togetherfor the lastdays.4Behold , the hire of the labourerswho have reaped downyourfields,which is ofyou kept back by fraud , crieth : and the cries of them which have reaped are enteredinto the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.5
Ye have lived in pleasureon the earth,and been wanton ; ye have nourishedyourhearts,asin a day of slaughter.6
Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he dothnotresistyou.7
Be patienttherefore,brethren,unto the coming of the Lord.Behold , the husbandmanwaiteth for the preciousfruit of the earth, and hath long patienceforit,untilhereceive the earlyandlatterrain.8Beyealsopatient ; stablishyourhearts:for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh .
9Grudgenota one against another , brethren,lest ye be condemned : behold , the judgestandethbefore the door.10Take , mybrethren, the prophets,who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction,and of patience.11Behold , we count them happy which endure . Ye have heard of the patience of Job,and have seen the end of the Lord;that the Lordis very pitiful,and of tender mercy.12Butabove all things,mybrethren,swearnot,neither by heaven,neither by the earth,neither by anyotheroath:butletyouryeabeyea;and your nay,nay;lest ye fallintocondemnation.13Isanyamongyouafflicted ? let him pray . Isanymerry ? let him sing psalms .
14Isanysickamongyou? let him call for the elders of the church;and let them prayoverhim,anointinghim with oilin the name of the Lord:15And the prayer of faith shall save the sick , and the Lord shall raisehimup ; and if he havecommittedsins, they shall be forgivenhim.16Confess your faults one to another,andprayoneforanother,that ye may be healed . The effectual ferventprayer of a righteous manavailethmuch.17Eliaswas a man subject to like passions as we are,and he prayedearnestlyb that it mightnotrain : and it rainednoton the earth by the space of threeyearsandsixmonths.18And he prayedagain,and the heavengaverain,and the earth brought forthherfruit.19Brethren,ifanyofyou do errfrom the truth,andoneconverthim;20Lethimknow , that he which converteth the sinnerfrom the error of hisway shall save a soulfromdeath,and shall hide a multitude of sins.
