James 5:4

4 Behold, 1the pay of the laborers who mowed your fields, and which has been withheld by you, cries out against you; and 2the outcry of those who did the harvesting has reached the ears of 3the Lord of Sabaoth.

James 5:4 In-Context

2 Your riches have rotted and your garments have become moth-eaten.
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 in the last days that you have stored up your treasure!
4 Behold, the pay of the laborers who mowed your fields, and which has been withheld by you, cries out against you; and the outcry of those who did the harvesting has reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth.
5 You have lived luxuriously on the earth and led a life of wanton pleasure; you have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter.
6 You have condemned and put to death the righteous man; he does not resist you.
