James 5:3-13 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
3 Your gold and your silver have rusted; and their rust will be a witness against you and will consume your flesh like fire. It is 1in the last days that you have stored up your treasure! 4 Behold, 2the pay of the laborers who mowed your fields, and which has been withheld by you, cries out against you; and 3the outcry of those who did the harvesting has reached the ears of 4the Lord of aSabaoth. 5 You have 5lived luxuriously on the earth and led a life of wanton pleasure; you have bfattened your hearts in 6a day of slaughter. 6 You have condemned and c7put to death 8the righteous man; he does not resist you.

Exhortation

7 Therefore be patient, 9brethren, 10until the coming of the Lord. 11The farmer waits for the precious produce of the soil, being patient about it, until dit gets 12the early and late rains. 8 13You too be patient; 14strengthen your hearts, for 15the coming of the Lord is 16near. 9 17Do not ecomplain, 18brethren, against one another, so that you yourselves may not be judged; behold, 19the Judge is standing f20right at the gdoor. 10 As an example, 21brethren, of suffering and patience, take 22the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. 11 We count those 23blessed who endured. You have heard of 24the hendurance of Job and have seen 25the ioutcome of the Lord's dealings, that 26the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful. 12 But above all, 27my brethren, 28do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath; but jyour yes is to be yes, and your no, no, so that you may not fall under judgment. 13 Is anyone among you 29suffering? 30Then he must pray. Is anyone cheerful? He is to 31sing praises.
