English Standard Version

James 5:1-6

MSG 1 And a final word to you arrogant rich: Take some lessons in lament. You'll need buckets for the tears when the crash comes upon you. ESV 1 Come now, you rich, weep and howl for the miseries that are coming upon you. MSG 2 Your money is corrupt and your fine clothes stink. ESV 2 Your riches have rotted and your garments are moth-eaten. MSG 3 Your greedy luxuries are a cancer in your gut, destroying your life from within. You thought you were piling up wealth. What you've piled up is judgment. ESV 3 Your gold and silver have corroded, and their corrosion will be evidence against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have laid up treasure in the last days. MSG 4 All the workers you've exploited and cheated cry out for judgment. The groans of the workers you used and abused are a roar in the ears of the Master Avenger. ESV 4 Behold, the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, are crying out against you, and the cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts. MSG 5 You've looted the earth and lived it up. But all you'll have to show for it is a fatter than usual corpse. ESV 5 You have lived on the earth in luxury and in self-indulgence. You have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter. MSG 6 In fact, what you've done is condemn and murder perfectly good persons, who stand there and take it. ESV 6 You have condemned and murdered the righteous person. He does not resist you.
