James 5:11-20

NAS 11 We count those blessed who endured. You have heard of the endurance of Job and have seen the outcome of the Lord's dealings, that the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful. NIV 11 As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job's perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy. NAS 12 But above all, my brethren, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath; but your yes is to be yes, and your no, no, so that you may not fall under judgment. NIV 12 Above all, my brothers, do not swear--not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. Let your "Yes" be yes, and your "No," no, or you will be condemned. NAS 13 Is anyone among you suffering? Then he must pray. Is anyone cheerful? He is to sing praises. NIV 13 Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. NAS 14 Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord ; NIV 14 Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. NAS 15 and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him. NIV 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. NAS 16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. NIV 16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. NAS 17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the earth for three years and six months. NIV 17 Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. NAS 18 Then he prayed again, and the sky poured rain and the earth produced its fruit. NIV 18 Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops. NAS 19 My brethren, if any among you strays from the truth and one turns him back, NIV 19 My brothers, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring him back, NAS 20 let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins. NIV 20 remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins.
