James 5:11-20 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
11 We count those 1blessed who endured. You have heard of 2the aendurance of Job and have seen 3the boutcome of the Lord's dealings, that 4the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful. 12 But above all, 5my brethren, 6do 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 7suffering? 8Then he must pray. Is anyone cheerful? He is to 9sing praises. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for 10the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, d11anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; 15 and the 12prayer eoffered in faith will f13restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will 14raise him up, and if he has committed sins, gthey will be forgiven him. 16 Therefore, 15confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be 16healed. 17The effective hprayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. 17 Elijah was 18a man with a nature like ours, and 19he prayed iearnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the earth for 20three years and six months. 18 Then he 21prayed again, and 22the jsky kpoured rain and the earth produced its fruit. 19 My brethren, 23if any among you strays from 24the truth and one turns him back, 20 let him know that lhe who turns a sinner from the error of his way will 25save his soul from death and will 26cover a multitude of sins.
