1 Come now the rich ones, weep you crying aloud over the miseries of you those coming.
2 The wealth of you has decayed, and the garments of you motheaten have become;
3 the gold of you and the silver have become rusty, and the rust of them for a witness to you will be, and will eat the bodies of you as fire; you laid up treasure in last days.
4 Lo, the reward of the laborers of those having reaped the fields of you, that having been withheld by you, cries out; and the loud cries of the reapers into the ears of Lord of armies have entered.
5 You lived luxuriously on the earth, and were wanton; you nourished the hearts of you as in a day of slaughter.
6 You condemned, you murdered the just ones; not he opposes you.
7 Be you patient then, brethren, till the presence of the Lord. Lo, the husbandmen expects the precious fruit of the earth, having patience for it till he may receive rain early and latter;
8 be patient also you, establish the hearts of you, because the presence of the Lord has approached.
9 Not murmur you against each other, brethren, so that not you may be judged; lo, the judge before the doors has been standing.
10 An example take you, brethren of me, of the suffering evil and of the patience, the prophets, who spoke in the name of Lord.
11 Lo, we call happy those patiently enduring; the patience of Job you heard, and the end of Lord you saw, because very compassionate is the Lord and merciful.
12 Above all things but, brethren of me, not do you swear neither the heaven, nor the earth, nor other any oath; let be but of you the yes, yes, and the no, no; so that not under judgment you may fall.
13 Suffers evil any one among you, let him pray, is cheerful any one, let him sing.
14 Is sick any one among you, let him call for the elders of the congregation, and let them pray over him, having anointed him with oil, in the name of the Lord.
15 And the prayer of the faith shall save the one being sick, and will raise him the Lord; and if sins may be having been done, they shall be forgiven him.
16 Confess you to each other the faults, and pray you on behalf of each other, so that you may be healed; greatly prevails a prayer of a just being operative.
17 Elias a man was of like infirmities with us, and a prayer he prayed of the not to rain; and not it rained on the earth years three and months six;
18 and again he prayed, and the heaven rain gave, and the earth put forth the fruit of herself.
19 Brethren, if any one among you may wander from the truth, and may turn back any one him, let him know, that the one having turned a sinner out of wandering way of him, will save a soul from death, and will hide a multitude of sins.
