~ Misuse of Riches.  Warning to Rich Oppressors

Jam 5:1  Go to [listen] now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.

Jam 5:2  Your riches are corrupted [rotted], and your garments are motheaten.

Jam 5:3  Your gold and silver is cankered [corroded]; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire.  Ye have heaped [hoarded] treasure together for the last days.

Jam 5:4  Behold, the hire [wages] of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud [you failed to pay], crieth [out against you]: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth [a military epithet of God].

Jam 5:5  Ye have lived in pleasure [luxury] on the earth, and been wanton [self-indulgence]; ye have nourished [fattened] your hearts [yourselves], as in a day of slaughter.

Jam 5:6  Ye have condemned and killed the just [innocent men]; and he doth [who were] not resist [opposing] you.

~ Exhortation.  Patience in Suffering

Jam 5:7  Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord [Christ].  Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.

Jam 5:8  Be ye also patient; stablish [stand firm] your hearts: for the coming of the Lord [Christ] draweth nigh.

Jam 5:9  Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before [at] the door.

Jam 5:10  Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord [Christ], for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.

Jam 5:11  Behold, we count them happy which endure.  Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of [what] the Lord [Jesus Christ finally brought about]; that the Lord is very pitiful [full of compassion], and of tender mercy.

Jam 5:12  But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath [anything else]: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.

~ The Prayer of Faith

Jam 5:13  Is any among you afflicted?  let him pray.  Is any merry?  let him sing psalms.

Jam 5:14  Is any sick among you?  let him call for the elders of the church [ congregation ]; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord [Jesus Christ]:

Jam 5:15  And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord [Christ] shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

Jam 5:16  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.  The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Jam 5:17  Elias [Elijah] was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

Jam 5:18  And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.

Jam 5:19  Brethren, if any of you do err [wander] from the truth, and [some] one [should] convert him [back];

Jam 5:20  Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide [cover over] a multitude of sins.
