Jas 5:1-6, (MKJV)
|1 ||Come now, rich ones, weep and howl for your hardships coming on.|
|2 ||Your riches have rotted, and your clothes have become moth-eaten.|
|3 ||Your gold and silver have corroded, and their poison will be a witness against you, and will eat your flesh as fire. You heaped treasure in the last days.|
|4 ||Behold, the hire of the laborers reaping your fields cry out, being kept back by you. And the cries of those who have reaped have entered into the ears of the Lord of hosts.|
|5 ||You have lived luxuriously on the earth, and lived wantonly. You have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.|
|6 ||You have condemned and murdered the just; he does not resist you.|
