James 5:1-6 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
Warning to the Rich
5 Come now, you rich people! Weep and wail over the miseries that are coming on you. 2 Your wealth is ruined and your clothes are moth-eaten. 3 Your silver and gold are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You stored up treasure in the last days! 4 Look! The pay that you withheld from the workers who reaped your fields cries out, and the outcry of the harvesters has reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts.[a] 5 You have lived luxuriously on the land and have indulged yourselves. You have fattened your hearts for[b] the day of slaughter. 6 You have condemned—you have murdered—the righteous man; he does not resist you.
