James Chapter 5 : 1-10 - World English Bible [WEB]

  • World English Bible [WEB]
  • 1 Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming on you.
  • 2 Your riches are corrupted and your garments are moth-eaten.
  • 3 Your gold and your silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be for a testimony against you, and will eat your flesh like fire. You have laid up your treasure in the last days.
  • 4 Behold, the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you have kept back by fraud, cry out, and the cries of those who reaped have entered into the ears of the Lord of Armies.
  • 5 You have lived delicately on the earth, and taken your pleasure. You have nourished your hearts as in a day of slaughter.
  • 6 You have condemned, you have murdered the righteous one. He doesn't resist you.
  • 7 Be patient therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. Behold, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient over it, until it receives the early and late rain.
  • 8 You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.
  • 9 Don't grumble, brothers, against one another, so that you won't be judged. Behold, the judge stands at the door.
  • 10 Take, brothers, for an example of suffering and of patience, the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.
  • Open English Bible [OEB]
  • 1 Listen to me, you rich people, weep and wail for the miseries that are coming upon you!
  • 2 Your riches have wasted away, and your clothes have become moth-eaten.
  • 3 Your gold and silver are rusted; and the rust on them will be evidence against you, and will eat into your flesh. It was fire, so to speak, that you stored up for yourselves in these last days.
  • 4 Listen! The wages you have held back from the laborers who mowed your fields are crying out against you, and the outcries of your harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts!
  • 5 You have lived on earth a life of extravagance and luxury; you have indulged your fancies in a time of bloodshed.
  • 6 You have condemned, you have murdered, the righteous one! Must not God be opposed to you?
  • Concluding Appeal
  • 7 Be patient, then, friends, until the coming of the Lord. Even the farmer has to wait for the precious fruit of the earth, watching over it patiently, until it has had the spring and summer rains.
  • 8 And you must be patient also, and not be discouraged; for the Lord’s coming is near.
  • 9 Do not make complaints against one another, friends, or judgment will be passed on you. The judge is already standing at the door!
  • 10 Friends, as an example of the patient endurance of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.

What is the Sinner's Prayer for Salvation?

The sinners prayer is a common Christian term for a prayer that is said when someone wants to repent of their sin, ask God for forgiveness, and verbally state their belief in the life, death, and saving resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"For, if with your lips you acknowledge the truth of the message that JESUS IS LORD, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with their hearts people believe and so attain to righteousness, while with their lips they make their Profession of faith and so find salvation." Romans 10:9-10

Christ's death on the cross paid in full the debt of our sin. Action must be taken to take hold of the gift.

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven through any good works. At this moment I trust Christ alone and receive by faith all Grace purchased by Jesus as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him and by my faith take hold of His grace and love for me. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Thank you for your word that will guide me as to how I should live my remaining days. Please grant me the wisdom to discern correctly and motivation to grow my faith, obedience, understanding, appreciation, and love for you. Thank you for your Grace and mercy that I do not deserve. Thank you that my salvation is not based on my level of performance in my short life but in my receiving what your victory on the cross did pay for. Thank you that I can receive by my faith alone, your glorious gift of salvation. Thank you for hearing this prayer and for saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
