James 5

CEB 1 Pay attention, you wealthy people! Weep and moan over the miseries coming upon you. NRS 1 Come now, you rich people, weep and wail for the miseries that are coming to you. CEB 2 Your riches have rotted. Moths have destroyed your clothes. NRS 2 Your riches have rotted, and your clothes are moth-eaten. CEB 3 Your gold and silver have rusted, and their rust will be evidence against you. It will eat your flesh like fire. Consider the treasure you have hoarded in the last days. NRS 3 Your gold and silver have rusted, and their rust will be evidence against you, and it will eat your flesh like fire. You have laid up treasure for the last days. CEB 4 Listen! Hear the cries of the wages of your field hands. These are the wages you stole from those who harvested your fields. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of heavenly forces. NRS 4 Listen! The wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out, and the cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts. CEB 5 You have lived a self-satisfying life on this earth, a life of luxury. You have stuffed your hearts in preparation for the day of slaughter. NRS 5 You have lived on the earth in luxury and in pleasure; you have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter. CEB 6 You have condemned and murdered the righteous one, who doesn't oppose you. NRS 6 You have condemned and murdered the righteous one, who does not resist you. CEB 7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. NRS 7 Be patient, therefore, beloved, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious crop from the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. CEB 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. NRS 8 You also must be patient. Strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is near. CEB 9 Don't complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won't be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door! NRS 9 Beloved, do not grumble against one another, so that you may not be judged. See, the Judge is standing at the doors! CEB 10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness. NRS 10 As an example of suffering and patience, beloved, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. CEB 11 Look at how we honor those who have practiced endurance. You have heard of the endurance of Job. And you have seen what the Lord has accomplished, for the Lord is full of compassion and mercy. NRS 11 Indeed we call blessed those who showed endurance. You have heard of the endurance of Job, and you have seen the purpose of the Lord, how the Lord is compassionate and merciful. CEB 12 Most important, my brothers and sisters, never make a solemn pledge—neither by heaven nor earth, nor by anything else. Instead, speak with a simple "Yes" or "No," or else you may fall under judgment. NRS 12 Above all, my beloved, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath, but let your "Yes" be yes and your "No" be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation. CEB 13 If any of you are suffering, they should pray. If any of you are happy, they should sing. NRS 13 Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise. CEB 14 If any of you are sick, they should call for the elders of the church, and the elders should pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. NRS 14 Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. CEB 15 Prayer that comes from faith will heal the sick, for the Lord will restore them to health. And if they have sinned, they will be forgiven. NRS 15 The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven. CEB 16 For this reason, confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous person is powerful in what it can achieve. NRS 16 Therefore confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective. CEB 17 Elijah was a person just like us. When he earnestly prayed that it wouldn't rain, no rain fell for three and a half years. NRS 17 Elijah was a human being like us, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. CEB 18 He prayed again, God sent rain, and the earth produced its fruit. NRS 18 Then he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain and the earth yielded its harvest. CEB 19 My brothers and sisters, if any of you wander from the truth and someone turns back the wanderer, NRS 19 My brothers and sisters, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and is brought back by another, CEB 20 recognize that whoever brings a sinner back from the wrong path will save them from death and will bring about the forgiveness of many sins. NRS 20 you should know that whoever brings back a sinner from wandering will save the sinner's soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.
