James 5:5-10View Full Chapter
5You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter.
6You have condemned and murdered the innocent one, who was not opposing you.
Patience in Suffering 7Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. 8You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near.
9Don’t grumble against one another, brothers and sisters, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door! 10Brothers and sisters, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.
