James 5 ©
1 Wicked rich men are warned of God's impending judgments. 7 The brethren are exhorted to patience after the example of the prophets and of Job: 12 to abstain from swearing; 13 to pray in affliction and sickness, and sing psalms in prosperity: 16 to acknowledge mutually their faults, and to pray for one another: 19 and to endeavour to reclaim sinners.
eBehold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of fsabaoth.
iYe have condemned and jkilled the just; and he doth not resist you.
k1Be patient therefore, brethren, unto lthe coming of the Lord. Behold, the *husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive mthe early and latter rain.
nBe ye also patient; ostablish your hearts: for pthe coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
2Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: qbehold, the judge standeth before the door.
Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, rfor an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.
Behold, swe count them happy twhich endure. uYe have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that vthe Lord is very *pitiful, and of tender mercy.
xIs any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? ylet him sing psalms.
dConfess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. eThe effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
And hhe prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.
