James 5:10-20 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
10 As an example, 1brethren, of suffering and patience, take 2the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. 11 We count those 3blessed who endured. You have heard of 4the aendurance of Job and have seen 5the boutcome of the Lord's dealings, that 6the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful. 12 But above all, 7my brethren, 8do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath; but cyour yes is to be yes, and your no, no, so that you may not fall under judgment. 13 Is anyone among you 9suffering? 10Then he must pray. Is anyone cheerful? He is to 11sing praises. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for 12the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, d13anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; 15 and the 14prayer eoffered in faith will f15restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will 16raise him up, and if he has committed sins, gthey will be forgiven him. 16 Therefore, 17confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be 18healed. 19The effective hprayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. 17 Elijah was 20a man with a nature like ours, and 21he prayed iearnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the earth for 22three years and six months. 18 Then he 23prayed again, and 24the jsky kpoured rain and the earth produced its fruit. 19 My brethren, 25if any among you strays from 26the truth and one turns him back, 20 let him know that lhe who turns a sinner from the error of his way will 27save his soul from death and will 28cover a multitude of sins.
