1: Go to now, ye rich, weep, howling over your miseries that [are] coming upon [you]. 2: Your wealth is become rotten, and your garments moth-eaten. 3: Your gold and silver is eaten away, and their canker shall be for a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as fire. Ye have heaped up treasure in [the] last days. 4: Behold, the wages of your labourers, who have harvested your fields, wrongfully kept back by you, cry, and the cries of those that have reaped are entered into the ears of [the] Lord of sabaoth. 5: Ye have lived luxuriously on the earth and indulged yourselves; ye have nourished your hearts [as] in a day of slaughter; 6: ye have condemned, ye have killed the just; he does not resist you. 7: Have patience, therefore, brethren, till the coming of the Lord. Behold, the labourer awaits the precious fruit of the earth, having patience for it until it receive [the] early and [the] latter rain. 8: Ye also have patience: stablish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is drawn nigh. 9: Complain not one against another, brethren, that ye be not judged. Behold, the judge stands before the door. 10: Take [as] an example, brethren, of suffering and having patience, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of [the] Lord. 11: Behold, we call them blessed who have endured. Ye have heard of the endurance of Job, and seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is full of tender compassion and pitiful. 12: But before all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, nor by the earth, nor by any other oath; but let your yea be yea, and your nay, nay, that ye do not fall under judgment. 13: Does any one among you suffer evil? let him pray. Is any happy? let him sing psalms. 14: Is any sick among you? let him call to [him] the elders of the assembly, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of [the] Lord; 15: and the prayer of faith shall heal the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he be one who has committed sins, it shall be forgiven him. 16: Confess therefore your offences to one another, and pray for one another, that ye may be healed. [The] fervent supplication of the righteous [man] has much power. 17: Elias was a man of like passions to us, and he prayed with prayer that it should not rain; and it did not rain upon the earth three years and six months; 18: and again he prayed, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth caused its fruit to spring forth. 19: My brethren, if any one among you err from the truth, and one bring him back, 20: let him know that he that brings back a sinner from [the] error of his way shall save a soul from death and shall cover a multitude of sins.
